    USB - Autorun.ico, and Drive Icons

    Hi. My first post. Windows 10 Version 1903 (OS build 18362.592)
    Big problems with USB icons.
    Previously I have been able to set USB Drive Icons in the Registry. Now they do not work. Hard Drive and DVDs are fine, but not USBs or SDs. Similarly autorun.inf wuth autorun.ico, do nott work.
    Can anybody pleeeeeze help.

    Autorun represented a security risk and was disabled around Windows Vista.

    • Vista and later: The AutoRun task is no longer automatically and silently executed on any drive type. All volumes are handled by AutoPlay which, by default, will present an appropriate dialog to the user.

    See Autoplay:
    How to Enable, Disable, and Customize AutoPlay in Windows 10

    However, if you accept the risk, and you have Pro, you can enable Autorun via Group Policy:
