Stop Autoplay In USB Flash Drives By Pressing One Keyboard Button

Today I want to share a little tip that will stop autoplay in USB Flash drives. Not only flash drives, it also stops autoplay for CD and DVD also. While inserting CD, DVD or any flash drive, simply press and hold the Shift key, this will disable the autoplay dialog box. Holding down the Shift key will also block the applications that starts automatically. Note : Works fine in Windows XP and Windows Vista

When exactly should we hold the shift key?.. & how do we enable it back, if we want to(as you said it'll disable autoplay)?
