Hi, my name is ***** ***** I'll be happy to help you today.

Windows 10 does not come with built-in DVD capability. What you'll want to do is download a program called VLC. You can search Google for it or download it directly from www.videolan.org.

Once you have installed VLC you can use it to watch DVDs. With the program up, just click on Media in the program menu, and then Open Disc. Select your DVD to play the movie.

If you have any other questions on this, just let me know.
