video confusion

I don't shoot video and I know nothing about it. Yesterday I thought maybe it's time to give it a go. I shot some short videos by selecting the video mode and pressed the shutter button. I can view the results on my camera. My normal post process starts by copying all the files from my SD card to my PC but I cannot see any video files. I use Windows or Faststone when I am copying and understand why I can't see them in Fastone because they are not a valid file type and I can't see 4K files when I have shot some in the past but they always show up in Windows but these 1080Ps dont. I know I thought, I'll open them in VLC but that says no file types recognised. So in the first instance how do I just see that they exist with their details, I'll worry about viewing later.
