How to Turn On or Off Video Autoplay in Microsoft Store App in Windows 10

information   Information
The Microsoft Store app in Windows 10 offers various apps, games, music, movies & TV, and books that users can browse through, purchase, or get for free to download and install for their Microsoft account in Windows 10 PCs and devices.

Some apps and games play videos automatically when you open their page in the Microsoft Store app. You can click/tap on the video to pause playback, or let the video play until it finishes and automatically stops playing.

If you prefer, you can turn off video autoplay in the Microsoft Store app where you would have to click/tap on the video for it to play instead.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off video autoplay in the Microsoft Store app for your account in Windows 10.
Note   Note
Turning on or off video autoplay in the Microsoft Store app will not have any affect on background videos that play for a movie or TV show opened in the Microsoft Store app.
