    DVD/CD Drive and Default Web Browser Setup


    Received HP notebook for Christmas. Model 15-F211WM. Having problems with (1) making Mozilla Firefox the default web browser instead of Microsoft Edge; and (2) viewing DVDs (I insert DVD, drive whirs, lights flash, nothing plays, get no messages). How do you access the DVD drive anyway?

    Both suggestions worked like a charm!!! THANK YOU!! Now, how do I eject the DVD, other than pushing the button on the player itself.
