I hope this is simple all though I am unable to figure out how to do it. I would like to open more than one Windows Media Player application to facilitate viewing one video file while playing a completely different audio wav file. I can only do this now by opening Media Player first and muting the audio then opening a separate Irfanview application. Unfortunately the Irfanview program has no volume control on it and I need the volume adjustment capabilities like on Media Player. How can I open two Windows Media Player applications and select a different file for each one to play?
My second question involves safely deleting programs I never use from Windows XP and Office Suite. I never use many of them and need to make room on my hard drive. Is it possible and safe to delete programs like PowerPoint, Publisher, Front Page etc to make more disc space on my hard drive? Are there any other programs that could safely be eliminated in Windows XP if I no longer use them, such as Internet Explorer, Outlook and Outlook Express? I am worried that if they were deleted it would affect the performance or even the actual functionality of other programs.
Any help and suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
