Windows has a built-in video player that is used by Microsoft Edge, Movies and TV, and even some third party apps such as Netflix and Hulu, so you can have some control over their playback in Windows 10.
Click on the “Start” button and then open Settings. Settings is the icon just above the power button and looks like a sprocket. Next, click “Apps” and then at the left, click “Video playback.”
If you have the appropriate hardware, it will show up here and you can make some adjustments to customize your experience.
You can have videos that are played by Windows auto processed so they look enhanced every time, and if you have a slower Internet connection, you can allow the video to play at a lower resolution. Once you make your choices, you can close the window.
