    Hi, there's no DVD player in Win 10: you need to install another program. Please see e.g.

    and threads on this topic in this forum.

    Then configure Autoplay appropriately, starting with

    All settings are in Default Programs. You can make those changes in system settings or in the Control Panel. It was for a while that if you upgraded from 7 & 8, you would automatically have Microsoft's native Windows 10 DVD player automatically download. I would go for VLC, since it has a lot more to it than some of the other players.
