Here is MKVtoolnix v 29 silent installer for windows (32 bits version). Compatible with win xp/7/8/10 x86/x64.
-The default path for the installer is %systemdrive%/Program Files (x86)\MKVtoolnix
-added MKVextractGUI2/Suprip (not present in the original version)
-Some shortcuts are automatically created in the Startmenu.

It is an excellent tool to edit mkv.

What difference does it make is Win10 supports mkv. MPC-HC (my favorite player) plays mkv's perfectly, in fact I have yet to find a media file format this thing won't play.

Don't tell me you use that Windows Media Player garbage.

WMP 12 is restrictive is every ways, so I use vlc & itunes 12.1. MKV out of the box gives noobs to watch movies downloaded from torrents w/o 3rd party s/w.

K-Lite Mega Codec Pack (MPC-HC) + Winamp. VLC sometimes when I want to play with video effects.

VLC is my second choice. iTunes is pure bloat. You need it only if you have an Apple product due to that company's insistence everything being proprietary.

Why in the world would these lamers download movies in mkv format? At Yify they're all in mp4. Files are smaller and will play on just about anything. I copy them to flashdrive and watch the movies on my TV. I hate watching movies (or anything else) on the computer, that's what the TV's for.

Lamers? Understand that video size/quality depends on the codec and encoding parameters, not the container. YIFY could deliver you exactly the same video in mkv. Matroska is just a container used to bind different streams (a/v/subs) together. mkv was made because avi is not suitable for holding h.264 video, and unlike mp4, mkv has completely open specifications and implementations. What you also may not be aware of is that WebM format, backed by Google and Mozilla and used on YouTube for HTML5 video, is just a subtype of mkv.

I take it then that mp4 and mkv are simply containers, correct? I have some questions. The first involves file size. I just looked for a typical movie (about 1:45 in lenght) and noticed that using Matroska the file size was about 2 GB - with a resolution of 720p. A similar movie encoded with mp4 takes up about 1.5 GB with a 1080p resolution. Imagine you had the same movie in 1080p format, one copy as mp4 and the other mkv with a much larger file size. If you put both on flashdrives and played them side by side on 2 similar TV's, would the mkv look better?

I've seen the webm format on some files. MPC-HC plays it perfectly.

It's difficult to tell which one will look better in your example, they have different resolutions and bitrates. The higher the resolution, the higher the bitrate required to maintain original quality. On the other hand, increasing the bitrate past a certain point will not yield noticeable improvements in quality. 1.5 GB for 1:45:00 of 1080p video seems much overcompressed to me so if I had to guess I'd say the mkv one will look the same or better even though it's 720p. If video streams were identical, there would be zero difference between mkv and mp4, that much is for sure.
