    I thought I was posting there..
    Ah.. sorry.. I'd just come from your thread on Autohotkey.. sorry, too early in the morning - I read 'keys' in your post. Could you elaborate on that? - "media keys while player is in background"

    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.

    AutoPlay - Enable or Disable - Windows 7 Help Forums

    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!

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

    None of the suggestions worked for me unfortunately. I have a USB thumbdrive with autorun and I can't get it to work. My workaround was to insert the thumbdrive and open it. Under the view tab, select options, then view tab again. I put a check mark next to "Launch folder windows in a separate process". This at least opens the drive and I can launch the EXE file.

    thank you very much. the manual fix worked for me. I haven't tried the reg file. By the way, I'm running windows 10 Version 10.0.10586 Build 10586. Yesterday I had problems opening my microSD card reader and an external hard drive because the windows were not automatically popping up and navigating to the mounted volumes in explorer. I had to go to Computer>Drive every single time I would mount a volume which was annoying.

    Windows 10 AutoPlay


    I tried one of these registry autoplay fixes on here and now my computer wont even show the drive letter in the lower right when i plug in a flash drive or headphone jack, bottom line it didnt work and now i probably have to do a reset now. I was originally having problems with autoplay on my cd player when i enter a dvd in or a regular cd with files on it not being able to autoplay but the registry fix still didnt work. please help me. thx

    I've found writing a small script to poll the DVD-RW drive enables autoplay to work for that on my new laptop (no problems on my old one). It also ensure explorer refreshes when I
    eject/insert/eject/insert a CD or DVD. Autplay doesn't work for flash drives

    Autohotkey script:
    ;
    ; Poll DVD-RW drive Z for autoplay to detect drives
    ; and explorer to update
    ;
    Loop {
    Sleep, 900
    DriveSpaceFree, Space, z:\
    }

    Note: an in-place upgrade repair install is preferable to refresh or reset. It keeps your programs and most settings.
