I am using a laptop with WIN7 pro installed. Whenever I click on a mp3 file, a tool (as shown in attachment) appears and plays. What is it? Should I download Media Player for better performance? Please direct me to the appropriate download link and version. Thanks much. MP3

Looks like a mini mode of windows media center
I have windows 7 professional and cannot replicate that using WMP but do get something similar with windows Media Center

r/click your mp3 and open with choose one of your media players
such as WMP or winamp if you have it.

ksfok welcome back, as I said r/click your mp3 file then go to open with and select which player is offered in your panel.
What do you see offered?
I have looked through all the possible images for WMC and dont see this icon
I have windows 7 and my WMP or Media Center does not produce this

I used to have Media Player as my default. A few days ago, I accidentally downloaded Quick Time which now became my default. How can I set my default player to be Media Player again? Thanks.

Just r/click any of your media files, and then select  open with then select advance >select> WMP and apply as the default player
Or go to Start All Programs> at the top of this List>default programs>Set your default Programs
and Set program Access and Computer Defaults Select Microsoft Windows>apply
