Why can't I plug in my camara to my computer to download pictures with 8.1

When I had windows 7, I was able to plug in my camara or memory card and a screen would pop up giving me options to save or whatever. When I plug in my camara or memory card it just goes to media to watch with no options to save or move? How do I save the pictures off my camara or memory card? Thanks

Hit CTRL + F to open the search and enter Autoplay

Autoplay Search

Click the option settings

Now you should get a screen that lists "devices" like memory card, iPad and so on

Autoplay Settings

From the dropdown "memory card" select what you want Windows to do when you insert it. 

You can tell it to download the images or use a program to open it.
