Lightroom opens when you any external drive? How to fix this
A slightly annoying feature of Lightroom is that the program opens automatically as soon as an external data carrier is plugged into the computer.
When you use Lightroom and connect an external hard drive or USB stick to you computer or laptop, lightroom opens every time. As almost noone on the planet uses Lightroom every single time when connecting a usb stick, it’s less annoying to change this setting.
Personally i prefer this not-opning-automaticcally-setting much more than the standard setting.
Quick Lightroom setup: “Uncheck open if memory card detected”
This feature can be turned off quickly by selecting “Preferences” in the menu item “Edit”.
In the dialog box, uncheck “Show import dialog box if memory card detected” and click “OK”.
When you connect an external hard drive or a USB stick Lightroom will not open automatically.
