How to view dvd on laptop

I'd like to view a recently bought 1st series of Game of Thrones dvd set on my laptop ... but I don't know where to begin apart from placing the dvd in the slot

I have Windows 10 & an Acer 5750 Aspire laptop

Any help will be gratefully received

Re: How to view dvd on laptop

Just put it in and it will play automatically.
Windows media player is most likely your default programme but you can also download Power DVD or VLC player which are both very good media apps.
I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

I use VLC but Windows Media Player is perfectly fine. Insert DVT and it will start playing automatically with all the controls onscreen. You may have to open it to full view.

Re: How to view dvd on laptop

@Cleoriff I've been going through the FAQ's on the link you provided ... & ... I may need a de-coder?

Cannot see a Windows Media Player 'button' on my laptop screen

I think it's better if I go & find some personal sustinence ... then try again ... thank you again Thanks!

Re: How to view dvd on laptop

Is this the PC you upgraded from Win 7 to win 10?

Anyway it WMP should be there. Have a look at how to find it here
