Windows 10: Autoplay not working in main Windows 10 profile

    Autoplay not working in main Windows 10 profile

    I recently did the free upgrade from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 on my desktop. Everything went smoothly, except for the fact that Autoplay doesn't want to work anymore. I can get it to come up with the notification in the Action Center when I plugged a USB device in, but clicking the actual device name just gets rid of it from the list, and nothing else happens.

    The weird thing is that this only happens in my main profile on my PC. I created a new profile recently (in addition to my main one), and Autoplay works flawlessly there. Is there some setting that got messed up for me during the upgrade? Thanks in advance!

    Me too! I also upgraded from Windows 8.1. A laptop upgraded from Windows 7 did not have this issue.

    I've done quite a lot of research (Group Policy editing, adding a registry key that influenced Autoplay in older versions of Windows) and have not been able to fix it.

    I don't know if it's a bug in Windows 10 itself or (perhaps more likely) a bug in the migration process.

    Other places this bug is mentioned:
    No notification banners for removable drives. - Windows 10 Forums
    Windows 8.1/10 Bitlocker Toast Notification
