    looking for a shortcut to video playback


    I want all my mp4 videos to playback with a certain video program I own ( power dvd), and a few weeks back I found a spot in my windows 10 settings where I could change all my playback to windows media player . ( my mistake) .

    Now I could individually change my playback mode for each one ( I have a seperate harddrive with many movies and video files to Power DVD .... but can't seem to find that short cut area .
    ( settings) where it will do this to all my files ( .mp4) with a single click ..]


    any help?

    Thanks in advance

    :)
