Had a really annoying issue pop up recently that was a bit of a /facepalm moment. Windows 10 is now my main OS and of late Adobe Lightroom decided to open and try to import images every time I connected a removable device. As you can imagine, this began to drive me nuts! I went through all of the Lightroom settings to confirm auto import features were turned off – but still no joy.

I don’t recall this feature being part of previous Microsoft operating systems, but it turns out Windows 10 recognizes Lightroom and had the import images option set via its Autoplay feature. Once I figured this out it was pretty easy to amend.

Open Autoplay settings by typing ‘Autoplay’ when opening the Start Menu:

win10_autoplay

From the drop down menu for Removable Drive and  Memory Card select the desired action (in my case – Take no action):

win10_autoplay_dropdown

All done!

win10_autoplay_noaction
