Making Audacity be the default program for mp3

Aftyer installation in Win 7 32 bit, Audacity does not apepar in the list of recommended programs that can be associated with mp3 file types as the default program. I click on “Browse” and then select Audacity.exe (in Program FilesAudacity) but nothing changes - Audacity does not become the default.

Any ideas what is wrong?


Did you previously have Audacity 1.3.x installed and associated with MP3 files?

Yes to having Audacity 1.X installed. As to whether it was the default program for mp3, I think so but am not 100% sure.
