    When I plug in a USB or external drive the autoplay does not open an explorer the way it used to. The auto run/auto play settings have not changed-what's wrong?

    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 Marchony,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft community.

    I suggest you to follow the Methods below.

    Method 1: Hardware Troubleshoot

    Windows 10 has a built-in troubleshooter to check and fix issues with hardware and devices. I would suggest you to run this troubleshooter to check if the issue is with your touch pad.

      Control panel

      Large icons
    • Click on troubleshooting and click on the
      view all option on the left panel
    • Run the Windows Store apps troubleshooter

    Method 2:
    Update USB Controllers.

    To update the USB Controllers from Device Manager follow these steps.

    • Go to Device manager in control panel.
    • Select Device manager and a Device Manager window will pop-up.
    • Double Click on USB Controllers to expand.
    • Right click on the USB Controllers that is listed and select Update.

    Method 3 : Follow these steps to specify what should happen when you insert different types of digital media into your computer.

    1. Open AutoPlay by clicking the Start button, in the search box, type autoplay, and then click AutoPlay.

    2. Under MEDIA, find the type of media that you want to change the AutoPlay setting for.

    3. Click the action that you want AutoPlay to take when you insert CD/DVD into your computer.

    4. Click Save.

    Hope this information is helpful. Please feel free to reply in case you face any other issues with Windows in future.
