Why has my workflow been interrupted? Hyperlink or attach?

For at least a decade I have been able to drag and drop items from File Explorer and Browsers on to my map and a hyperlink was created.

Along came attachments.  I could create those by holding down Alt, dragging and then getting a choice to attach or link files.

Then the multiple hyperlink feature appeared. Dragging and dropping did not replace the current topic hyperlink but added it to a list of links.  I am a one link per topic person.  This is a pain having to remove old links and slows down my processes for managing hyperlinks.

Now in version 14 you get asked whether you want to link or attach in a pop up. By the time I notice this pop up, my mouse, finger or stylus is already over the next item I want to drag on to the map.  I have to reverse, lose time, click the choice which for me is nearly always hyperlink.

Please can I have an option to disable both these intrusive features: Multiple hyperlinks and the choice pop up.
