    How to put "Import pictures/videos using WindowsExplorer" in AutoPlay?


    Hi all,

    Whenever I connect my camera, I see these options:

    I have no interest in using the rubbish "Photos app" to import my pictures.

    I want to use the built-in Import Wizard in Windows 10, which can be found by going to "This PC" and right clicking camera/tablet, then clicking "Import Pictures and Videos".

    The "Import Pictures and Videos" wizard is vastly superior to the "Photos app" crap. How can I put the "Import Pictures and Videos" option in AutoPlay, like in Windows 7/Vista/XP? If I recall correctly, Windows 8 also had this problem. It had the built-in wizard along with the rubbish "Photos app", but only the "Photos app" appeared in AutoPlay.


    Thanks.
