When I insert an SD card

by Howmu / April 17, 2010 3:03 AM PDT

Into my computer a window usually shows up asking me which action I would like my computer to take. I checked the little box at the bottom where it says "do this action every time". Now I can't get this window of choices back. Can someone tell me how to get this window again.

Control Panel > AutoPlay

Does your Control Panel have an AutoPlay option? I'm not on my XP system so I can't check at the moment.

If it does, use that to change the AutoPlay settings.

You may have to insert the SD card before accessing those options.

Could you suggest a different way to access my autoplay settings?

to my last post. I found out how to access autoplay thru right clicking the drive and in properties I found the option for autoplay where I was able to change settings. Thank you very much for your help. I should be okay now.

Ahh, of course.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
