Re: How to view dvd on laptop

Depending on the version of windows, click the start button on screen (or press the windows key on the keyboard).
When the menu comes up, either search for "media" or scroll down to windows accessories and it should be listed in there.

@WispaRed7

 

VLC is your best bet if nothing happens when you put it in as Windows 10 lacks any DVD Video support as standard

 

Here's the official link as we don't want you installing any garbage https://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.en-GB.html
