    set AutoPlay defaults with registry editor


    Do you know how to set the AutoPlay defaults with the registry editor? For example, I would prefer the default to be set to "Open a folder to view files (File Explorer) for "Removable Drive" and "Memory Card," but I don't exactly know how to set this in the registry editor and I can't find any examples anywhere!

    Thanks.

    :)

    Program doesn't exist for Autoplay

    Hi,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    I suggest you to set the Autoplay settings and check if it helps.

    Follow the steps below.

    • Press Windows key +X, select Control Panel.
    • Go to Control Panel and locate AutoPlay.
    • In AutoPlay settings make sure that you check Use AutoPlay for all media and devices.
    • Next click the Reset all defaults button. Your Autoplay settings should be reset to default.

    • Insert USB or DVD to see if Autoplay is working.

    You can also try downloading Windows Media Player 10

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    Please do let us know if you have installed all the pending updates on your device.

    Also, check with the sound drivers as well.

    I suggest you to check with the setting for AutoPlay and check if it helps.

    Even if you have turned on the AutoPlay option, there might be some option chosen Choose AutoPlay defaults. I suggest you to check with those options.

    • Press Windows key, type AutoPlay and click on AutoPlay settings.
    • To enable AutoPlay, move the Use AutoPlay for all media and devices button to On.
    • Next you can choose and set your AutoPlay defaults.
    For Removable drives, the following options are available from the drop-down menu:

    • Take no action
    • Open folder to view files
    • Ask me every time
    • Configure this drive for backup (File History)
    • Configure storage settings (Settings).

    For Memory Cards, the options available are:

    • Play video files using alternate
      software
    • Play using Windows Media Player
    • Take no action
    • Open folder to view files
    • Ask me every time.
    Set your options and exit.
