    Windows 8.1 on acaer laptop pen drive not showing up


    Good evening to all,Not sure if this is the correct place to ask this question,Here goes anyway.
    I have an Acer Aspire running windows 8.1 laptop.Working okay but the only niggle is when I insert a usb pen drive or an SD card the pc makes a sound that it's recognised the item.But nothing pops up on scree,Like my W7 when I insert a pen drive etc a box comes on screen that gives me a few choices what I would like to do.
    Nothing like this on the W8.1 I have to go to my computer and open the pen drive or the SD card.Have checked the auto runs in the pc settings and all looks okay there.
    Any help here Please.
    Many Thanks.
