        I am using windows 10 home 64 bit on my new computer and need help in the correct way to download a new program from a disk to my hard drive. After I have loaded the disk onto my computer I do not get and icon asking just what the the computer is to do. When loading a new disk on my old computer using windows 8.1 I would get a message asking me what the computer should do. I would click on load program and it was loaded. On my new computer I can not tell if program is loaded and no icon on the computer for the new program. Where should I find this icon so that I can load the new program? Help?? Thanks Gerald

        Look in Control Panel|Autoplay and set the options as desired (same as in Windows 7 & 8).

        Open Windows Explorer.
        Navigate to the DVD.
        Double click on the program to install it.
        Right click and copy of you want to copy it to your hard disk – you probably don’t need to do this.

        If you are still unsure, take a screenshot of the file listing in Explorer.

        To take a screenshot
        Run Snip n Sketch (built-in to Windows)
        Take the screenshot
        Save as PNG
        Upload here using the “Select File” button below the post edit window.

        cheers, Paul

        type control.exe in the Run dialog box to open the classic Control Panel, then click on All Control Panel items and choose Autoplay & set your options there (just like with Zig described)

        I always disable auto play. I don’t want random software running on my machine without my express consent.

        cheers, Paul

          I always disable auto play.

          Please how best to disable?
          Uncheck “Use Autoplay for all media and devices”?
          Or set all items to “Take no action”, or “Ask me every time”?
          Thank you.
