I cannot play my movies on Win 10.     I have found the Win Media Player but that doesn't help.  WIN 10 for Dummies is no help.  Google is no help.   Why the fuck can't they just leave stuff alone?  My next question is how do get rid of all the shit on the desktop?  I mean, X Box ???

 

Thanks

Try VLC media player: https://www.videolan.../vlc/index.html

 

ShutUp10 has a shitty user interface but does a good job in listing a lot of options for muting and opting out of unnecessary win10 features: https://www.oo-softw...com/en/shutup10

VLC is a good shout, it plays any video format thrown at it, including DVD discs.

Put my money down to buy a media player from "footymadstreams" to take home .

Access to thousands of movies ,tv shows ,news ,sport etc.

One off cost ,no ongoing fees and web support.

they removed dvd playback use VLC player or any third party player will suffice

lol windows 8 is a pain in the ass just like windows vista was or windows ME. I personally skipped those versions. I had to deal with them at work though.

I got friendly with win 10 now. Don't forget to shut it up. Take a look here: https://www.oo-softw...com/en/shutup10

 

I agree wiith the other posters that the VLC player is te player of choice. The inbuild windows players a crap.

nothing wrong with Windows 8 if you know how to customise it. would have actually stayed on windows 7 but I need at least windows 8 since my pc games get the best support on win 8/10

Windows 10 is crap. I got it taken off my laptop and went back to W7.

I have found that VLC pretty much plays any format that I want playing. I have not bothered to use any other video player for several years.

 

On a separate note, an earlier upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 seemed to stop my wifi working on my Sony laptop. A clean install of Windows 10 fixed the problem.
