The title of your post asks one question...
...but the body of your post asks another question.
While I realize that they are related, I don't guarantee that mimicking the settings below will enable autoruns.. nor would I suggest that you enable that dangerous feature.

If no polices have been defined for the current user, then this is what you should see by default:

The local machine policy area has this without any group policy settings being set/changed:

If this computer is a work computer of a member of a domain, then you should check with IT services and/or domain admins before making any changes.

You can set AutoPlay options through the Control Panel. Or click the Orb (Start) and type autoplay then enter.
