Windows 7: USB and Android Devices

Windows 7 64 bit
USB and Android Devices

Hello All,

I am running Windows 7 on my home PC. A couple of weeks ago, I wanted to hook up my LG Cell phone which uses the Android operating system. I connected the phone via a USB cable to my computer and the computer did not recognize the phone at first. I did some fiddling and I am not exactly sure what I did but eventually the PC recognized the phone and installed software. I then got a system pop up which asked about only using the connection for file sharing or charging. I chose file sharing as that is what I was doing at the time.

Is it normal for my PC to ask this question? Is there a way to change the setting?

Thanks, Bill
