No notification when I insert SD card, or turn on HD

    No notification when I insert SD card, or turn on HD


    Some setting must have changed. Or maybe it was the 8 to 8.1 update.

    I use to get a notification at the upper right when I turned on an external HD, or inserted an SD card. I could click on it, and it gave me the opportunity to open it in explorer.
    Now I don't get the notification.
    The device works, but I have to go to My Computer if I want to see it in explorer.

    Is there a setting for this somewhere?

    I had this problem earlier today.

    Go to start
    in charms bar, click search , type in Pc settings
    to the left click on pc and devices
    then autoplay
    from there you can change how you want it.

    Thanks eCh. I found the answer last night. I was going to update my posting, which I thought I put in General Support, but it wasn't there, and I couldn't find it.
