    Choosing what happens when you insert a blu-ray movie disk


    When I insert a DVD movie disk, a pop-up says "Chose what happens with DVD movies."
    I am given 3 choices:

    * Play DVD Video – Power Media Player 14
    * Find a New DVD App (link to Microsoft store)
    * Take No Action

    "More Apps" is not an option.

    I have successfully installed a different player that I want to use.
    But am not given the opportunity to select it.
    How do I conquer this?

    I am on Win 10 Home -- 10.0.19042

    - - - Updated - - -

    By the way, I have ID'd my desired player as the default to open BUP, IFO and VOB files.
    But that seems to have no effect on what player opens when I insert the disk.

    You can choose the default action on inserting a DVD in another way, but again there is no option to select a program not listed. Further, I found some programs listed inappropriate for playing a DVD.

    Rt click the DVD drive, click Open Autoplay and click the program you wish to use.
    That should be the program that opens when you next insert a DVD.

    However... the Default Programs Editor (free) can do this (I've not tried it but the Add option is there):

    When I right-click the DVD drive, and click Open Autoplay, I am given 3 choices:* Play DVD Video – Power Media Player 14* Find a New DVD App (link to Microsoft store)* Take No Action"More Apps" is not an option.

    There is no way to select the program I want to use.

    Thank you for your reply.


    I told you that.

    And the same is true of thge Control Panel Autoplay options.

    See the Default Programs Editor.

    The Default Programs Editor worked -- thanks for that tip.
    But I'm still curious if there's a way to fix this w/in the normal Windows 10 platform...
