Help [Solved] - How to Turn MTP Back On?


Android Expert
So my USB connection was playing up, dropping in and out and switching focus to an instance of Windows Explorer each time and really annoying me, so I - foolishly, as it turns out - turned off both MTP and PTP so the phone just charged.

Which was fine ..

Until I decided I needed to have MTP again and .. there's no option to turn it back on :eek:

I simply cannot find the USB connection menu. In the past, it's come up in the notifications area whenever I connect the USB to a PC, but now nothing. I've searched through the settings, I've googled, I've searched on here ..

I tried restarting then plugging in, restarting already plugged in, I even tried turning on debugging though I have no idea what to do with it, but .. still nada.

Anyone have an idea how I can turn MTP back on (short of a factory reset which I'd really like to avoid)?

Thank you!

They really did want to hide that so-and-so, didn't they?

Pretty much everywhere else I've checked that menu, all it had was Help, but now I see that in a couple of places it actually has useful stuff.
