    When I double click in WinExplorer on an *.mp4 video file a popup appears asking me if I want to play the video with a certain program (here with well known VLC video player).

    As you can see in the attached snapshot I checked the checkbox to ALWAYS use VLC for opening the video.

    BUT: When I double click later another *.mp4 video then the "Open With" dialog re-appears again.

    Why is Win 7 not able to remember it really?

    Hi,
    if you open the control panel and look under default programs you'll see where you can change the autoplay settings. autoplay.
