Shift to Disable Autorun

Q:
Whenever I put a CD into my computer it automatically opens Windows Media Player, iTunes, etc. and starts playing. How do I stop this from happening!?

A:
So you want to start the music on your terms, eh? Well, that’s easy enough. Just hold down the Shift key when you insert a CD and you’ll bypass Autorun, allowing you to manually choose when your CD plays.

If you don’t like remembering to hold Shift every time and you’re looking for a more…permanent solution, check this tip out.
