Assinging patches to a MIDI file

Hi all.
New to this, and not a very good notation reader!

Question: I grab a midi file, and load it up in Cubase. On many files, the tracks are not labled as to the intended instrument patch. The track ARE all there and playable, but I dont know which tracks relate to which instrument patch/sound.

Some tracks are kind of obvious (most percussion tracks, main piano parts, etc) but are there any tricks to figuring out ALL the parts without guessing or being a music major?

Thanks! (and Sorry if dumb question!)
