I just upgraded to VMWare Workstation 15.0.0 build-10134415 from version 10 and every time I plug in a new USB device this pop-up comes up that blocks Windows Explorer on the host computer to even see that device until I interact with this popup. Selecting anything in it doesn't make any difference the next time a new device is plugged in. It still pops up. Moreover, any old device is no longer auto--plays in Windows Explorer:
"Choose where you would like to connect .... drive"
Is there a way to remove this pop-up and always have USB devices to be redirected to the host computer?
Have you tried checking the "Remember my choice and do not ask again" to make Workstation 15.x stop asking? You do want to choose "Connect to host" if you want it to behave like previous versions of Workstation.
