Tweak Windows 8 security – Configure auto-play settings

Here’s how to secure your Windows 8 system with an easy tweak: disable auto-play for all devices. That way, whatever you insert in your optical drive or USB ports, nothing will run automatically.

We used to rely on a third party software to do that in Windows XP (via Tweak UI). Not anymore: it’s now a native feature integrated into Windows 8!

Disabling Windows Auto-Play

Here’s how to secure your system by disabling auto-play on all devices.

Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > AutoPlay

Then simply UNCHECK: “Use AutoPlay for all media and devices” and choose the action you wish for each type of devices. In this case, choose “Take no action“.

That’s it!

Enjoy!
