    somehow windows medial player became the default player for mp4 files.
    so when you double click on one parallels runs what a pain. but I figured out where to change it by choosing other and choosing the right app and choosing always use but it does not change the default app. how do I change it?

    A simple search would have answered this 100 times over.

    Get info on the file, change program, click Change All...

    I asked because the info I found did not work. So I thought something was wrong.
