What happens when you open autoplay on the 80Gb drive?

When i click on 'Open Autoplay', a window opens asking me what I want to do, and gives options, such as 'Open folder to view files File Explorer' - significantly 'in' is lacking from that statement !

I was going to suggest uninstalling some video-manipulation software to remove the context menu item, but lordy, you have a ton of it installed there.

So I decided to install Glary Utilities. Not because it would add autoplay necessarily, but that it loads using an outdated Registry method that loads very early in the bootup:

BootExecute: autocheck autochk * les\Glary Utilities 5\data\gulr.dat

But no Open Autoplay. So I took another look at your installs. And the winner is (wait for it):

Actual Window Manager

Just uninstall that and reboot, and Open Autoplay will be gone.

I uninstalled Actual Windows Manager, but that 'Open Autoplay' entry is still in the context menu of just one 80Gb HDD !

Here's what I did. I replaced a dead hard drive on someone's laptop, and installed Windows 10. Then installed Glary and checked the fixed drive after to see if Open Autoplay showed - it didn't. Uninstalled Glary, then installed Actual Window Manager. Rebooted, and Open Autoplay didn't show on my fixed drive. but did show on my USB drive. And so I made my grand announcement here.

And after you posted, and I had rebooted after uninstalling Actual Window Manager, Open Autoplay still shows on the USB drive. So although I have never right clicked on individual drives in the past on 10 and checked the context menu, I am kinda thinking it really is just some function of Windows.

Since it looks like it's part of Windows really no options available.

Being part of Windows does not mean it can't be tweaked. But 'we' have not found a way.

CCleaner is one of 4 or 5 3rd-party programs I have tried. None show 'open Autoplay' - let go give the option to remove it.
