Hello all,

Whenever I connect my phone, the windows phone companion splash screen appears. It is very annoying, how can I stop this happening? I would prefer it if file explorer just opened the root directory on the phone.

Thanks all.

have you actually tried that fruit bat? it only works on mine if you have an app that claims the "URL:ms-phone-companion" protocol. so far as i know at this point in time this is not a fix, sadly. i'm going to try and convince winamp to take the protocol, probably wont take.
