    USB Pendrive problem

    Good morning to all.
    Since the latest windows 10 update, When I insert a usb pen drive into usb port on my laptop it don't show up I have to go into the File explorer to open the drive,And this is the same with a usb hdd.
    Been looking in the auto runs section but failed to solve the problem.
    Any Help on this Please, I know its not a major issue but annoying.
    Many thanks David.
