Windows 10: No window pops up when I plug in my USB portable hard or flash drive. Solved

    No window pops up when I plug in my USB portable hard or flash drive.


    When I plug in my USB flash drive or portable hard drive I don't get a window that pops up. Both drives will make a sound and show up in ThisPC so I have to go there to use them. Is there any way to fix this?

    I've seen that happen once in awhile when I plug a drive into the same port it was in before and it gets the same drive letter. I haven't had a problem with it as I nearly always have File Explorer open anyway intending to work with it. But I don't know of any fix for it, actually just haven't come across for a fix in my 'net travels.

    You can turn off the Balloons in Properties with right click on task bar.

    Breton and bro67, thank you both for your replys. I found the answer to my problems. The setting is called Autoplay. For anyone else who comes across this, type Autoplay into the search box, and then just turn it on.
