You need to check on your phone whether there is an option to connect for file transfer.

Most recent versions of Android connect only for charging by default, but also generally present a pop-up when you connect asking if you want to change the connection type and, if you don't respond then, you can often bring it back by doing the "swipe down from off the top of the screen" and find the status message about being connected for charging and to tap to change the connection type.

By the way, if you have a "transfer photos" option do not use it, it's easier to use the file transfer option, as the phone will then be connected as though it were a USB device and its internal and external (micro SD) storage shown as their own entries.

When you plug phone in USB port on the phone swipe down from top of screen their should be something about charging click on it should give options for file transfer or something like that. I would check but I just went from the s7 to an iPhone can’t remember what it says

I unplugged the USB cable on both ends, and reconnected it. Now the phone shows up in Device Manager. But still no option to change connection type on phone.

I right clicked on the phone, and it seemed to recognize it. But when I tried to import photos, it says no new photos on device. I swiped down on the phone, and changed Use USB for from charging to File Transfer. Nothing happened. Now I changed to Photo Transfer.
