"Auto Play" means what your operating system should do when you insert CD or DVD or USB hard drive. When you insert a DVD movie, Windows Media Player automatically opens and plays the movie.
I was pissed off when Windows Media Player opened automatically and played when I inserted a DVD. I wanted to play the movie using WinDVD program. I changed my Auto Play for "DVD Movie" and "Enhanced DVD Movie" settings as below.
This tip is to show you how to change the "Auto Play" defaults.
1. Click Start Orb Button and type "Auto Play". Press Enter. ( you can also go to Control Panel and open "Auto Play")
2. Change the setting by select the actions in the drop/down menu.
3. Don’t forget to click "Save".
