Defining autoplay CD/DVD options in Windows 7

Submitted by Jochus on Tue, 26/02/2013 - 21:42 | Posted in: Windows

I recently had the following issue: when I inserted a CD in my laptop, a default application was started. But I didn't want this application to startup - I just wanted Windows to ask me what I was willing to do with it.
The following instructions help you to reset this setting:

  • Click the Start button to view the Start Menu and then choose the Control Panel option
  • Click Autoplay
  • A new screen appears where you can change the default action of any content CD/DVD to Ask me every time
