How could we set up the default programs in windows xp pro sp1 such as the
default player, browser... to let different user account has different
default programs.

*Recently, i only managed to set a default programs which is the same for
all user.

Hi,

File associations are a global setting, meaning that they will apply the
same to all users. There is nothing in WinXP that wil lallow you to set
different defaults on a per user basis.
