Does this help?

When I switched to 10, I lost the function that allows converting movies onto DVD on Movie Maker. I miss Windows 7

I'm surprised you're having trouble with WMP in Windows 10. When I updated my laptop and desktop computers WMP was there.

Windows 10 Review: Multimedia and Productivity

Quote:
GROOVE, PHOTOS, MOVIES & TV, Groove music app and Movies & TV apps feature significant improvements that I can safely say, it’s time to retire Windows Media Player (which is still bundled with Windows 10) and forget about using third party apps like VLC. The great thing about Groove in particular it actually looks and works like a modern juke box. Of course, its touch optimized, but it feels right at home on the desktop. Groove is of course part of Microsoft’s Cloud mantra and the app integrates with Microsoft’s Cloud Storage OneDrive, you can sign in and access your synced music library from OneDrive itself.


That's corporatese for "We'd much rather you act like a passive consumer, pushing buttons, having your preferences tracked, and getting your credit card dinged every time. Also, we're still trying to converge touch screens with WIMP interfaces, even though people have told us time and again that they hate that."

VLC remains default here.

it wasnt part of either W10 new lappies, diff brands.
and....this was common from what i read, i had to go thru a FF plugin to get it.
they excluded it from many systems. it was a battle getting it.
my streams were shitty awful and now theyre better.

it seems IMPOSSIBLE now to get rid of spybot and i didnt know it had gone south when
i installed it on this one. there seems no way to remove it. many try few succeed.

MS Safety Scanner does a bang up job of going thru 800000+ files and finding the bot.
even it cant remove spybot.
