    Auto-launch is a time proven security risk and is therefore purposely disabled.

    Auto launch in order to do what?

    If I click on an .iso image file it opens in archive-manager; what do you want it to do?

    Here is one reason why autoexecuting a CD etc, is not necessarily a good idea: https://www.networkworld.com/article...ars-later.html

    OK I wont do it thx

    but if i wanted to know how to you make it so that when you insert a usb flashdrive it automatically open a file explorer window, how would you do it? same for double clicking on a iso file on the hdd.

    as i said i will not do it if it is unsafe but I am learning linux so i would like to know how to do stuff.

    thank you

    Somewhere in your settings there is a "Removable Media" section where you can choose what you want to occur when inserting a CD, DVD, or USB.

    On Kubuntu 20.04 a pop-up notification appears when you plug in the USB device offering different options to access it. There's an "open in file manager" choice. DK about vanilla Ubuntu.
