  • That's built-in to the OS - I don't think you can turn it off. However, you can listen for SelectionChanged, and unset any selection which is set.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.
