Ever have the curioustity to eneable autorun on your floppy drives? Probably not, but just incase you have had the itch to do so, I will explain how it's done!


Floppy drive autorun

This tip involves editing the registry, so I would highly recomend making a backup of it first before proceding!

Find or create the key :

HKEY_CURRENT_USER->Software->Microsoft->Windows->CurrentVersion->Policies->Explorer->

Then find the value named : NoDriveTypeAutoRun

Note : if your value has "95" in it, procede to step 1, if it has "B5" or anything else, procede to step 2 !

Step 1. Right click on this value and click Modify. If the value has 95 in it, delete the number 95 and replace it with 91 , making sure to keep all zeros and spaces in the value! 

Step 2. If the value has B5 in it, or any other letter followed by the number 5, change ONLY the number to 1, so, for example it looks like B1 ( your letter substituted for the B ) NOTE: If you value does not have 95 in it, and instead has a value with a letter such as B and then a 5, this tweak may not work!

Then click OK, restart your computer, and you will now be one happy autorun man!
