AutoPlay is a feature that allows users to configure how their device reacts when it detects an external media or device. It isn’t installed with Windows 10, but it can be enabled through Settings.
1. On your desktop, click the Start button, then select “Settings.”
2. In the Settings window, select the Devices tab on the left-hand side of the window.
3. Select the AutoPlay option on the left-hand side.
4. By default, AutoPlay will be disabled. To enable it, click on the toggle switch under “Use AutoPlay for all media and devices.”
5. You will then see a list of different types of external devices and options for how you want them to behave when they are detected.
6. For each type of device, you can choose from the following options:
Open folder to view files: This option opens a window that shows the contents of the external device.
Take no action: This option does nothing when an external device is detected.
Play media using [app]: This option opens the specified media player to play music or video on the external device.
Run program: This option runs a program from the external device when it is detected.
7. Configure the settings for each device and option as desired.
8. When you are finished configuring the settings, click “Save” at the bottom right corner of the window.
Your AutoPlay settings should now be enabled and any external devices or media inserted into your computer will now react according to the settings you have defined.
