Lightroom Starts Automatically (Nuisance)

Good day!

When I bring up my laptop I plug in my thumb drive which has lots of jpgs on it. Shortly after that Adobe Lightroom opens. It is quite annoying as I have to close it every time. How can I stop Lightroom from opening automatically?

Thanks

Remove the open with default programs from those files types.
Once you have closed Lightroom rightclick one of those files and open with
then choose default program to change it from Lightroom.
If you woud prefer ask you what you want to do
My Preferred
Go to Control Panel All control panel items> Auto Play
In the Pictures/Video/audio put it on to open a folder and view in explorer
Save it
This will apply with USB opening
Auto PlayWhen I plug in a USB device no matter type, I see this and I click on the folder
You can also open it fron C drive Devices with removable storage
USB opens withCheers

If you do not want the application to turn on as soon as you boot to windows click the start orb, then type in msconfig, click the startup tab, then remove the checkmark beside the Adobe lightroom application, then click apply. If you do not want the lightroom to open up the jpg follow merete's advice above.

Further to Merete's solid advice and useful screenshot, my preference is to untick the "Use AutoPlay for all media and devices" box up at the top, OR to set them all (maybe with the exception of allowing an Audio CD to play) to "Take No Action".  Like you, I hate intrusion while I am trying to work, and don't like Windows making decisions for me.
