Windows only: Freeware application USB AutoRunner automatically launches documents or applications when you plug in your USB thumb drive. We’ve explained in the past how to auto-run apps or documents when you insert your thumb drive by making your own autorun.inf file—a Windows default convention for automatically launching files. USB AutoRunner creates this file for you, so setting up a working autorun.inf file is as simple as telling USB AutoRunner what you want to launch when you plug in. USB AutoRunner is freeware, Windows only. While you’re at it, find out how to quick-launch your USB workspace.
