Wife has been asking and asking.
Need software [freeware if possible, but list any consumer software] to put 40 videos [small, under 3 minutes each] on a DVD along with 40 buttons/titles to select each individual video.
Possible? What software? Using windows 10.

As per the DVD spec, the max # of buttons available on a single menu screen is:
36 for 4:3 menus
18 for 16:9 menus
12 for 16:9 menus which incorporate the "Pan&Scan + Letterbox" feature
Not a good idea to have 40 buttons on the same screen anyway - too small & busy/confusing.
Workaround: use multiple screen "pages".
There are plenty of DVD authoring apps (that include menu creation/edit modules). Which depends on your skill & style. As a start, I'd suggest DVD Flick in the simple & cheap/free category, Cyberlink PowerDirector in the engaged hobbyist level, and Sony DVD Architect in the fairly complex Prosumer/SemiPro level.
DVDStyler is other freeware DVD authoring software that should be up to this task. It offers more flexibility than DVDFlick and it still actively developed and supported.
I often use plain text instead of text on a button for titles. For legibility, don't use tiny fonts (I use size 12 to 14 depending on the font and authoring program). Menus with no more than 10 titles per page seems to work best.
I'll download it, read the instructions on how to do what I need, and try to create the DVD late tomorrow.
