I was surprised that the Microsoft media players on Windows 10 don't support HEVC playback and I was redirected to their shop to purchase the codec. A Google search revealed that Microsoft has removed the h.265 codec from Windows 10 with Fall Creators Update 1709. When trying to download the codec from within the media players I was redirected to the shop.

I found that, at least as it stands now, the codec is downloadable for free from this Microsoft page:

It's better to travel well than to arrive...
