    Fixing Autoplay after the Anniversary Upgrade


    Hi, frustratingly, the upgrade sets all default settings (there are many) to default, and autoplay off.

    These steps are necessary (in my experience).

    1. Follow this old fix:
    Fixes for AutoPlay Dialog Box Not Appearing When Plugging in a Removable Device • Raymond.CC
    2. Enable Autoplay in Settings, remembering there are many more configuration options in Control Panel, Autoplay.
    3. Add a script to poll your CD/DVD drive.

    (Previously I found this was the only way to get autoplay to work with this in Win 10).

    Improvements in the Anniversary Edition:
    1. Autoplay also now works for flash drives (previously for me it worked for external USB HDDs, not flash drives)

    :)
