    I thought I knew what to do:

    Just turn on the Permissions for the desktop to see the damn phone....

    but, no where on the Verizon Note 4 can I find Permissions for it to see a Desktop PC, nor enable the PC to see the internal files.

    I seem to remember something about enabling media a long time ago, long before I had MM on my phone, which has only been about two weeks.... and I was on a long motorcycle tour and no time to investigate things.

    So, what am I missing?

    I am sorta of thinking I have to power off and use the menu to select the proper method? but why?
    it needs to be done while MM is running.

    Charge Only is the default USB setting in 6.0
    Should be able to select MTP in the drop down menu when you connect phone.

    That is the menu that I am missing, and that is what I was sort of remembering had to be done.

    I hear the beep, but no alerts show up.

    Okay, I pulled down the Notifications Bar, and there it is, asking me what to do.

    Thank you

    Not sure on Samsung 6.0 but you can check in developer options and see if you can change default. If not, you will have to use drop down menu each time.
    May look similar to my XPE. I'm using custom ROM and MTP is default.

    oops, we are on the same page, and cross posting.

    I checked there and since it was still in Transfer Files mode, it came up as that item is checked.
    hope it stays that way.

    thanks again
