One of the (many) things better about Android over iPhone is the ability to plug in a phone and access its files quickly and effortlessly through a PC’s file browser (such as Windows Explorer).
With the new Nexus 6P that simplicity seems to be … less so.
Not sure why, but I cannot access 5 of the 6 photo folders (ex: screenshots) on my phone. Nor can I see over half of my music folders. I would be less perplexed if it was a zero-sum situation, but the fact that I can see some but not others (especially when they are all in the same main folder) is a mystery. As far as I can tell, I’m ticking off all the to-dos on the checklist…
- USB Debugging is enabled.
- Use the USB for … File Transfers is selected.
- Using the official/stock USB Type-C cable that came with the Nexus 6P.
- Have a Gigabyte Z170XP-SLI motherboard (which has USB Type-C) so no adapters in play
