Hi

When you bring up notifications, tap the time and date.

I've not transferred files from my Nexus 5X so I can't help with that.

Hope that at least gets you on your way.

Subject: [BCAB] Android 6.0: Transferring Files to PC

Hi Everyone

I am using a Nexus 5X phone with Android 6.0 and the latest version of
Talkback, and Windows 7 with Window-Eyes.

Thanks for the information on USB cables. I now have one from Maplin with a
Type C Reversible plug on one end and a standard USB plug on the other end
to enable me to connect the phone to the PC.

But, having connected it, I cannot transfer any files. The phone will only
charge the battery. The PC can see the phone as a drive but cannot see any
files.

I have read that this is a new feature in Marshmallow. It is necessary to
pull down Notifications and, depending on what you read, click on a Settings
button and find USB Devices, or just find USB Devices.
Unfortunately, I cannot see a Settings button, or USB Devices option.

I have read it is possible to unlock Developer Settings and change an option
in there, but I don't feel competent enough to do this without wrecking
something else.

Can anyone advise me?

Pele West
