Can't set up gopro hero 7 white

I've charged the camera, inserted sd card and downloaded quick destop app. When the camera is powered on the language comes up then legal stuff and I touch agree, then it says install gopro app on your phone which I don't want to do as I've installed quick destop. It says follow app instructions to connect your camera; then I can't go any further.

 

Help please!

Thanks in advance

what the camera is telling you in order to use it via wifi you will need the gopro app  installed on the smartphone.  if you don;t want to install it now like @danielr15  said press the side or top button that will tell the camera to Stop pairing and  the next time you want to  down the road use the app simply go load the app, turn the camera on , swipe down, wireless connections turn On and   it should ask  you to  choose the app, remote etc. and  the rest the camera will do. while you follow the app instructions.

Hi @supercave57585,

 

If you don't want to pair your camera to your phone you may skip that. 

 

Just press the mode button or the power button. 

 

 

Regards,

-Jay
