How to Turn On Subtitles


Subtitles refer to the text that plays at the bottom of a video in time with dialogue from characters in the movie. They help you understand a movie if it's playing in a language you don't understand and can also help the hearing-impaired. You can turn on subtitles in Windows Media Player by using controls that are embedded inside of the player.

  • Double-click on your video to begin playing it in Windows Media Player.

  • Press "Ctrl" and F1 on your keyboard to go into Full mode.

  • Hit "Alt" and "P" simultaneously on the keyboard to activate the Play menu. Click "Captions and Subtitles."

  • Select the option that reads "On if available." This will turn on the subtitles in your movie.

Tips & Warnings

  • If your movie didn't come with subtitles, you can often find the subtitle file you need online.
