In File Explorer, when I right-click my DVD drive, "Install or run program from your media" is highlighted. When I double-click my DVD drive, it runs the executable specified in AUTORUN.INF. How do I change the default action to "Open" so that when I double-click my DVD drive, it just opens it in File Explorer to show me the contents?

I attempted the solution for Windows 7, but it didn't work.

  • Press the Windows and type autoplay.
  • Select AutoPlay

AutoPlay Options

  • Set the AuytoPlay options item-by-item, or
  • Uncheck Use AutoPlay for all media and devices to allow you to prevent automatic (possibly risky) actions.
