    I can not connect my Samsung S6 to my computer, it will not show up. When I check USB Tethering which I assume is the problem that option is greyed out on my phone and I do not have the option to turn it back on.
    Is there any way I can fix this?

    If you are trying to copy/transfer files from one to the other, the default USB connection mode for the phones USB is charge only.
    To change it, pull down on the drop down menu after you connect and select the USB symbol. Should have option for MPT.
    You also need Samsung USB drivers installed on your PC. Best way to get all drivers is to install Kies3 or Smart Switch.
    You can get Kies3 here
