    I know nothing about Android 13 but my Android 12 works the same way the earlier versions did except that I have to respond to the phone's onscreen dialog to allow file transfers every time I connect it by USB [I thought that earlier Android versions allowed me to set that once and then it defaulted to allowing file transfers every time].
    Les is very knowledgable.

    i do not have to do that when this phone had 12 you have to turn on developer setting on your phone i have do go to build number in about phone and that let me turn on developer options in the developer settings they have a place to change that i had to turn on usb debugging then verify apps over usb then there is a default usb configuration you can try transferrin files or transferring images, if you use images you do not get a lot of folders to go thru during that process, but it des not change the way they appear in file explored.

    what is the page that opens when i connect my phone to the pc called


    can anyone tell me when i connect my a51 phone to the pc and i get a page that opens up, what is that called?

    what i need to get is when that page opens and i get a choice for internal storage on the phone and then i click that and get a selection for DCIM and i click that and then i get a selection for camera and i click on that and then my cameras photos start to show on that page.

    so if that is the file explorer how can i force that to show large icons/photos and then force that to show them in the dated created or the last photo taken on the phone to be the first to show on that page, or change the sort order so it is descending all the time.

    so that every time i connect my phone to the pc and that page opens up by itself to have all that happen every time? there has to be a way. maybe by going into the back pages and checking off some boxes or adding some rules?

    i do not need an extra app i tried that lesferch app and that did not work.

    thanks

    Hello,

    It would be best to post a screenshot of this window that opens so we know for sure what it is.

    It does sound like it's the device being opened in File Explorer by AutoPlay when the phone is connected.

    Turn On or Off AutoPlay in Windows 10

    The only problem is external removable devices like your phone do not have their folder view settings remembered by Windows.

    ok i turned off auto play but it still does this. there has to be a way to get past that issue. of all the features win10 has and you cant get photos to show any size icon and sort order you need?

    You can't change the default view for all phones, tablets etc. with the one exception that WinSetView provides. That is, you can change the default Tiles view to instead be the your General items view (e.g. List, Details, Icons).

    However, if you set the view for your DCIM folder to the view you like, it should be saved to the Windows registry and open the same way on that same computer in the future. To get the view you want:

    1. Open the DCIM folder
    2. Initially set the view to Details
    3. Click the Date modified column heading to set the sort order
    4. Select Large Icons view
    5. Close the folder (this makes Explorer save the view)

    That's it. The next time you connect the phone, that folder should open up in the same view. Let us know if that works.

    Note: You don't really have to first pick Details view. You can also right-click in the white space and select your "Sort by" preference.
