I have Windows Media Player selected as the default .wav file player. When I try to preview an attached sound file in an email in Outlook 2010 by clicking on the attached file the selecting "Preview file", instead of Media Player opening embedded within the preview pane, it opens in a popout window, often behind all of my existing open windows. There are also no minimize, maximize close buttons at the top right of the window. Why is this happening and how do I make it so the previewer opens within the preview pane like it's supposed to?

I have Googled the problem and found no references to this concern online. I have tried disabling and re-enabling the Windows Media Player previewer with no luck.
