If you have problems connecting the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to your PC, then it may help to enable the "USB Debugging" option. This optimizes the communication between smartphone and PC.
But where do you find this option in the Android settings? That's exactly what we want to explain to you here for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Because it's not that easy to activate this option:
USB debugging is hidden in the developer options. And these are not visible at first. This means that you must first activate the developer options on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Proceed as follows:
After these are now active, open them:
Homescreen --> App menu --> Settings --> Developer options
Scroll here a bit down until you see "USB debugging". If you have this in view, then activate the option with the slider. Finished! Restart the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and then reconnect it to your PC.
Following this, a connection between the smartphone and the computer should be made wonderfully.
