    USB Device Application Choice Window

    When plugging in a USB device a window appears giving the user the choice of what application or function is desired.

    I mistakenly clicked the box that results in that window not appearing on subsequent use of a specific device.

    How do I get that window to reappear?

    Thanks !

    You can try disconecting the USB cable from that port. Allow about 30 secs for the port to be cleared then reinstall the USB cable .The icon should reappear in the bottom right corner. What pop up messages appear take no notice of as they are telling you what is happening.

    gl and let me know how you go, Oz

    Oz, thanks for your reply.

    Since posting the problem I was experiencing, I discovered that the pop up window was not generic, but rather had to do with one application. I solved it by reinstalling the specific application.

    Sorry for my confusion.
