Great tip thank you! Worked a treat for photos but for some reason I still can't locate videos when I connect my Samsung Galaxy S8 to a Dell laptop (they just don't show up in the folders where the photos are saved). Any idea why?

I select this MTP+ADB and reboot my S8, but this change is not saved after reboot. Is there a setting which keep my S8 from media files exchange at all?
