    inhibt windows explorer from closing when SD card removed

    no matter what I configure in Autoplay ...
    - whenever I say "safely remove mass storage" (in my case it's a SD Card) the explorer window is closed
    - it only stays open when I select another drive before "safe removal"
    - it also stays open when I just pull the SD Card (unsafe remove)

    the drive itself is a combined mass storage reader built into the Desktop PC and ist drive letters are always shown in the explorer

    Is there a regkey to tell Windows to just let it open ?

    In its infinite wisdom Windows assumes the user is finished using File Explorer [renamed from Windows Explorer in Win7] and to save resources closes that window. It really doesn't bother me as I usually have two or more instances of File Explorer running anyway [for access to External USB HDDs].
