Netflix's autoplay setting can easily be turned on or off, and here's exactly how to do it...
With the entire country pretty much working from home, it's safe to assume that everyone's Netflix accounts will be working overtime.
However, there is one feature that seems to frustrate some users - Netflix's autoplay setting, which automatically plays a trailer, as you're reading the movie/show's synopsis, or immediately starts showing the next episode in the series you're watching.
Luckily, you can turn off this setting pretty easily...
