  2. stop the playing of files in address bar

    I Found the problem in Internet Explorer 11. After the new Windows 10 installed itself, it must have reset everything in the Internet Explorer as well. It was the Autoplay function. Under these Instructions I was able to reset it and it now works as it once
    had.

    How to Change AutoPlay Settings

    Access Control Panel type in search box "default programs" you will find a list of options there. Some of which apply to DVDs. These are under "Change AutoPlay Settings".

    Click on Default Programs, or Change AutoPlay Settings.

    Under "Default Programs" there are four choices:

    1. Set your default programs

    2. Associate a file type or protocal with a program

    3. Change AutoPlay Settings

    4. Set program access and computer defaults

    windows 10 default recommendations and autoplay options

    I'm confused,but maybe I'm missing something.

    I have windows 10 and have noticed that MS recommended default programs don't match up with autoplay options.

    Two examples:

    Recommended default for music is Groove. In autoplay, Windows Media Player is an option, but not Groove.

    Recommended default for Videos is Movies and TV. Autoplay has Windows Media Player, but Movies and TV is not an option.

    Is there a reason/explanation for this?

    Default autoplay program

    Hi, there's no DVD player in Win 10: you need to install another program. Please see e.g.
    How to play DVDs in Windows 10 for free | PCWorld

    and threads on this topic in this forum.

    Then configure Autoplay appropriately, starting with

    and

    Default autoplay program [​IMG]

    Hopefully that will work for you.

    - here I'm just wondering what you're comparing it with... when did a DVD last use to play automatically?

    All settings are in Default Programs. You can make those changes in system settings or in the Control Panel. It was for a while that if you upgraded from 7 & 8, you would automatically have Microsoft's native Windows 10 DVD player automatically download. I would go for VLC, since it has a lot more to it than some of the other players.
