  • Hi,

    As far as I know, there is no group policy to configure this. You could try to create a script to change this setting in registry.

    You could find the device via GUID in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\ then find the Dword value PnPCapabilities (if it’s exist, create it). Then set the value to 38

    Hope that helps
