    With my first 920 Windows 8 would auto launch the Windows Phone App and with my replacement 920 it no longer does this and I kind of liked it. I changed the autoplay options in Control Panel and it made no difference. No anyone help?

    Are you talking about the window that pops up when your Phone is plugged in? or the Windows Phone 8 Desktop App?

    The Desktop app. It used to auto launch when I plugged my phone in and no longer does. I'd like it to again.

    Hit start and type autoplay, then click on the autoplay settings. Choose from there.

    And I believe if you switch it to Ask me every time, the next time you plug in, you should get the popup, and you can choose default from there.

    Ahhh... Finally got it to work. I had looked at the autoplay options previously and it looked like they were set up ok but, I diabled my 920 as a device and re-enabled it and now it's working the way I want.
