    looking for a shortcut to video playback


    I want all my mp4 videos to playback with a certain video program I own ( power dvd), and a few weeks back I found a spot in my windows 10 settings where I could change all my playback to windows media player . ( my mistake) .

    Now I could individually change my playback mode for each one ( I have a seperate harddrive with many movies and video files to Power DVD .... but can't seem to find that short cut area .
    ( settings) where it will do this to all my files ( .mp4) with a single click ..]


    any help?

    Thanks in advance

    Why do you regard that as a mistake?

    I can do more with power DVD than windows media. Such as find and attach .srt to video with a simple click , canít do that with WM.

    From their forum:

    In Power DVD GUI

    Settings > Player > Advanced > File Association..
    This is also described in the "F1" Help

    So use the same procedure but choose PowerDVD this time.

    And if you have to do it again in the future, you can also refer to
    Choose Default Apps - TenForumsTutorials
    - Its Option 4 is what you saw explained in that HS help page.
    - Its other Options can also be useful ways to approach the problem under differing circumstances.
