Hello,

How can I set Windows Media Player as a standard program just like in Windows 7.

If you click on a music in Windows 7, then automatically Windows Media Player will open.

How to do that in Windows 8?

There is no Media Player installed by default with Windows 8.
You can get it here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30685

Windows Media Player is included with most editions of Windows 8.

To make it the default music or video player, please see this tutorial:
