    Apple Device launches Windows File Explorer not iTunes


    When I plug in my iPhone, iPad or iPod into my Windows 8.1 Pro PC it launches Windows File Explorer instead of iTunes. There's no option in Autoplay for iTunes.

    If I launch iTunes manually the iPhone, iPad or iPod can be seen and used in iTunes.

    How do I get iTunes to show as an option in Autoplay
