How to Enable or Disable USB Drives or Ports in Windows 10 |Mini Tech Help Hindi.

                        Enable or Disable USB Drives or Ports.

Do you want to protect the data on your Windows 10 computer by blocking USB drives or disabling USB drives on your PC? In this guide, we will cover the three easy ways out there to enable or disable USB drives in Windows 10.



Blocking USB drives in Windows 10 can be done in many ways. You can use the Registry, BIOS or Device Manager  utilities to enable or disable USB drives in Windows 1

If you are comfortable making changes to Windows Registry, you can enable or disable USB drives in Windows 10 by manually editing the Registry. Here is how to do that.

1.Enable, Disable USB Drives & Mass Storage Devices using Registry.

If the administrator is smart, then he would definitely do this to ensure a tight blockade. He would alter the settings through regedit command on Run console. Now how do you unlock it? You have to go right into where the administrator has been. Here is how.

Go to Start > Run, type “regedit” and press enter to open the registry editor
Navigate to the following key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\USBSTOR

Now, on the right-side, double-click on Start DWORD value and change its value to 4 to disable USB drives and USB storage devices on your Windows 10 PC. Change the Start DWORD value back to 3 to enable USB drives and storage devices on your PC.


2.Use the Device Manager to Disable USB Ports.

Disabling the USB ports through the Device Manager is also pretty straightforward. Right-click on the Start menu, and click on “Device Manager.” When the window appears, click on Universal Serial Bus controller. (It’s the last option on the list.) You can also choose the uninstall option for the USB drive, and when someone inserts a USB, Windows won’t be able to find the drivers.



3. Disable or enable USB ports in BIOS.

Some manufacturers offer an option in BIOS/UEFI to disable or enable USB ports. Boot into BIOS/UEFI and check if there is an option available to disable or enable USB ports. Check your PC’s user manual to know if an option to enable or disable USB ports is present in the BIOS/UEFI.
