AutoPlay Solution

Source

AutoPlay lets you choose an action for different kinds of media when you plug in a device or insert media. You can set AutoPlay to open different kinds of content, such as photos, music, and video on different kinds of media, such as drives, CDs, DVDs, cameras, and phones. For example, you can use AutoPlay to select an app that will automatically open photos on a removable drive when you plug it into your PC. With AutoPlay, you don’t have to open the same app or reselect preferences every time you plug in a certain device.

  • You will only see an AutoPlay notification when you have AutoPlay turned on and connect a device, media, or content that you chose Choose a default (default) or Ask me every time as its AutoPlay default.
  • You can turn off AutoPlay for specific media or devices by choosing Take no action as its AutoPlay default.
  • If you connect a storage device to your PC (for example, a USB flash drive or other external drive), that device won’t appear under Devices in AutoPlay. AutoPlay will only show non-storage devices, such as some digital cameras, video cameras, and phones. You can view storage devices in the This PC window in File Explorer.
  • You can press and hold the Shift key when you insert devices or media into your PC to open an AutoPlay notification, regardless of the default setting.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off using AutoPlay for all media and devices in your account in Windows 10.
