What is it about in the video tutorial Setting default Android USB file transfer?

In the tutorial Set default Android USB file transfer, I will show you where to set the operating mode of the USB port on Android, when connecting to the PC.

In default mode, the USB port on Android it only works on loading, when connecting to the PC, and if we want to transfer files, we have to go to the bar to change the option.

Today I will show you how we can make the default file transfer mode, when connecting the Android phone to the PC.

Reasons why we want the operating mode of the USB port to be on file transfer, when we connect the phone to the PC

  1. Comfort! You simply want that when you connect the phone to the PC, it works in file transfer mode. That's why we connect it to the PC. If we wanted charging, normally, we connect it to the charger.
  2. Reason 2, safety in case the screen breaks; i mean...

If the phone screen is broken, how do you transfer the files to the PC?

In the unfortunate event that the phone screen breaks, we can no longer transfer files so easily.

That is precisely why it is good to be prepared with the default file transfer mode and the possibility of unlocking the phone online from the Google account.

If we had the setting USB on the default upload node, it is much harder to transfer files.

Why are there so many modes of operation of the USB port?

An Android phone can perform many tasks. Unfortunately, on Android and iOS phones we don't have a single physical port left, both for input and output.

This port is the USB port, and it has to perform all kinds of functions. That's why it's complicated to set up USB on Android.

On PC things are simpler. You have ports for everything

  1. Power is supplied through the cable that connects to the source.
  2. The sound has separate jacks
  3. There are many USBs
  4. The mouse and keyboard also have their own plugs (PS2 in some cases)
  5. etc, etc

  1. The question would be: how do we exit the Developer Options mode?

  2. Developer mode can be disabled. At least on Samsung, you can disable the developer options, and the settings you made in this way are cancelled.
    For me (Samsung), the deactivation setting is represented by a toggle that is the first in this menu.

  3. Hello,
    At least once or twice a month, it would be great to make a video presentation of a new smart gadget on the market that is worth buying and is useful (devices with batteries like these will be the future, devices with sensors, solar/photovoltaic devices, small and large electric vehicles, detection and alarm devices, smart sockets, smart tools, etc.)
    Thank you.

  4. Tomorrow I will publish a review / setup tutorial for a Wi-Fi 6 router, which I think is worth buying; Especially since it is quite cheap.

  5. Hi ! I have a problem and I think it's not just me: for several months my desktop no longer "sees" the android (A7 Nougat Lenovo k6 note) for file transfer but only the Camera option. I tried various solutions with the w1o drivers and nothing (maybe I didn't identify them all). To cleanly reinstall w10, .... I wouldn't really want to. Is it because of a W10 update? I would appreciate a solution. Thanks !

    It doesn't work for me, I tried everything but in vain.
    I have a Samsung a20e that is acting crazy, I changed the usb cable, updated drivers, etc., and nothing.
    It loads from the laptop but is not seen by windows 11, the other phones are visible and data can be transferred between the phones and the laptop.
    Do you have any idea what else I can do? I don't want to reset the phone/
    Thank you!
