There is a new app, I see, called Windows DVD player. I have not tried it yet. Saving a document in a notepad? Ok...you mean NOTEPAD or WORDPAD or something else. I find semantics are everything here.

Thanks for replying, where can I get the windows DVD player app? Also I can't save a new NOTEPAD. I can open up a new NOTEPAD type something in it but when I click save it says I don't have permission and I'm the only one who uses my computer.

start menu> all apps. FYI....I haven't tried it.

That's a bug (with the notepad). I can't help you as mine works fine.

Thanks! :) Yup, I like VLC. I also found the windows 10 notepad, it's called OneNote, so that works good. I guess the other notepad is outdated for windows 10. It let you keep your old notes but you can't make new notes with it you have to use OneNote. So everything is cool now. :D

Hi VLC is a DVD and media player, you can google it and download it for free. It works real good with windows 10. :) I couldn't find the windows DVD player in my apps so I googled VLC and downloaded it and it works good. Here's the link I used to the VLC website

Okay no problem. :)
I downloaded VLC on both laptops. Works great. I also read an article in Forbes this morning that talks about the problems with Windows 10 DVD and mentioned using VLC as a great alternative.
Thanks so much for your help!
