    Hi, there's no DVD player in Win 10: you need to install another program. Please see e.g.
    How to play DVDs in Windows 10 for free | PCWorld

    and threads on this topic in this forum.

    Then configure Autoplay appropriately, starting with
    Default autoplay program-1.jpg
    and
    Default autoplay program-1.jpg
    Hopefully that will work for you.

    it no longer plays automaticaly
    - here I'm just wondering what you're comparing it with... when did a DVD last use to play automatically?

    That's suggested in the first URL I posted.

    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.
