    [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!

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

    Hi DHT,

    I just wanted to say thanks for that little gem of information, AutoPlay failing was driving me mad but it's now working perfectly again.

    Thanks again, top man!

    Hi, I found autoplay wasn't working: the basic Windows 10 Settings (or via Control Panel, Autoplay) didn't resolve this.

    I found the registry references here helpful:
    Fixes for AutoPlay Dialog Box Not Appearing When Plugging in a Removable Device • Raymond.CC
    (Ok, it's not specifically Win 10, but the same keys exist - note I'm using a 32 bit OS).

    Usual caveat: Before making any change to the registry, back up. Disk imaging is recommended as the ultimate, but exporting (non-critical) keys before you change them or complete registry backups may be adequate. And there's always System restore - although plenty of people (like me) are experiencing the "System Restore did not complete successfully" problem in Win 10, and finding they have to uninstall their AV to use it. Hmm.
