When I send a photo to my MacBook (macOS 10.14) from my iPhone via AirDrop, finder opens and steals focus.

When I send a photo to my iPhone (iOS 11) from my MacBook via Airdrop, Photos opens.

How do I stay in my current app when airdrop completes? I don't want to have my attention rudely forced onto something new.

E.g. what I want:

  1. I am in e.g. Safari on my MacBook
  2. I send photo to MacBook via AirDrop
  3. AirDrop completes and Finder doesn't open on my MacBook
  4. I continue using Safari
  5. I can see the photo later

same on my iPhone
