Ok, let's say I got a music or movie folder open. I select multiple files by highlighting them all or using Ctrl or shift to select more than one. When I right click and select "Open" nothing happens! But, if I right click one of the files and select "Open with..." that file will open...but not the rest! This is kind of annoying and I would have no idea where to start trouble shooting this. It's been going on for months.

I'm not aware of Windows being able to open multiple files at once.

I don't even understand why would anyone want to play 5 songs at the same time.

It wouldn't open them all at once. It would make a playlist of sorts (playing them one after the other). I guess I didn't word it clearly enough...

In that case you need to use some program like Winamp.

Concur with Broni.

 

The apparatus in Windows for playing either music or video files...does so a file at a time.  Ditto for all players that I have ever used/tried with either type of file.  Makes sense to me.
