    Hi, if I click on something in OSX, I never want a Windows VM to be launched to run it. How do I disable this completely?

    thx

    Please go to VM configuration -> choose Option -> Startup and shut down -> and choose "never" at the "Start automatically" option.

    Hi, makes no difference for me. If I click on an mp4 on my mac, it keeps launching a Win10 VM to launch media player.

    I would also expect the "start up and shut down manually" to also never automatically start a VM.
