    Copy the text underneath and save as a .reg file and run it you will find that autoplay will now work.



    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
    "NoDriveTypeAutoRun"=dword:00000091


    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
    "NoDriveTypeAutoRun"=-

    I have the same problem. I tried the .reg file suggestion, but that did not solve the problem. I have not received any updates from Microsoft. All autoplay boxes have been set to 'Ask me every time'. I put in a CD and all I get is a notice appearing in the Action Panel that says 'Tap to choose what happens to this disk'. I tap the box and it closes. Nothing happens. Anyone have an update on this problem and how to correct it?

    Thanks

    Hello D, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you like, you could directly open AutoPlay, and choose the defaults you want.

    AutoPlay - Turn On or Off in Windows 10
    It does not work. I have spent two hours on the phone with Microsoft Support, they had access to my machine (they needed frequent breaks to look at the resource guide as they were not familiar with Win 10) . Bottom line Win 10 does not work with Autoplay with Windows Media Player or any other media player. This is a disgrace as MS have ruined the launch of a superior browser and OS with sloppiness with regard to the Media Player. There should have been full disclosure that Windows Media Player will not work and AutoPlay will not work, there should have been a Tutorial with a workaround. My wife hates Win 10 as she watches a lot of videos and I can't upgrade my Win 7 machine until this is fixed.

    Videolan VLC works


    Thanks CharlieVA for suggesting Videolan VLC Player. Its Free and it works!!
    Here are the steps, so everyone can benefit.
    1. Download Videolan VLC Player from the Internet. Click Run. Like all free software adding them and their partners to toolbars etc is pre checked. Uncheck all the ones you do not want and click Next until finished. There will be a clown hat at the bottom of your screen. Click it to launch the software.
    2. Right click on the Windows icon, then Control Panel, then Hardware/ Sound, you will see Autoplay under Devices and Printers
    3. Click on Change Default Settings for Media or Devices. For ‘Play DVD and for enhanced DVD’, choose Videolan VLC as the default option from the drop down.
    4. Click Save and you are good to Go !!

    This may actually fix autoplay issues


    I found this fix on the Microsoft forums, and it worked for me. All the settings for autoplay now work as configured, and change when I change them.

    The registry key

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]

    should contain a key labeled "NoDriveTypeAutoRun", which should be set to Hex value (dword) 91. Create it if necessary. You can use the following file if you like. Always 'edit' to view reg files first, and make sure they do what they claim to do!

    Fix Autoplay.reg

    Be sure to create a restore point first any time you start changing the registry.

    Thank you DHT at long last a solution that has worked for me.

    I've been everywhere even to the reinstalling of Windows 10

    Incidentally at long last I have solved the non destructive method of reinstalling Windows 10, just run setup from a Windows 10 DVD making sure that it is the correct language as installed

    You're welcome, Albyefield. And thanks to you for sharing that tip on reinstalling Windows 10. I was wondering how to go about doing that, since odds are good a new OS would need to be reinstalled. Windows 7 was the first OS of any kind I never had to reinstall, not even once. Perhaps Windows 10 will be as stable and "fixable", as you and I just did.
