Samsung Galaxy S6 Activate USB Debugging - How to do

If you want to connect your Samsung Galaxy S6 to the computer via USB cable, it may happen that the smartphone is not recognized as a media device but only as a camera. So files can not be copied or moved. Only the camera can be accessed. Is that also the case with your Samsung Galaxy S6, please proceed as follows to obtain a USB connection with which you can access the file system:

This requires that the USB debugging on the Samsung Galaxy S6 are activated. This option can be found in the developer options.

As the developer options in Android are not visible at the beginning and have to be activated, we want to show you here how this works on the Samsung Galaxy S6:

With the Developers options you can change on your Samsung Galaxy S6 various options to improve or to optimize the performance of the device. To activate them, open on the Samsung Galaxy S6 the following submenu:

From the home screen navigate to Menu --> Settings --> Device Information

You will find here the entry "Build Number". Now tap several times in quick succession on this entry to enable the developer mode.

After about seven times touching the entry "build number" a message box with "developer mode enabled" will be display at the bottom of the screen.

This developer options can now be used via Menu --> Settings. They are located directly to the left of the "device information". Have you opened it you can see the "USB debugging" option.

Sets a tick in the checkbox to enable this feature on your Samsung Galaxy S6. This mode starts automatically once if your smartphone is connected to the computer via USB cable and is responsible for ensuring that the Samsung Galaxy S6 is recognized as a media device.

You can now access the internal memory of the Galaxy S6 via USB cable and your computer to copy and paste music, videos, photos etc.

You know now how to turn on the USB debugging on your Samsung Galaxy S6.

The build number option is not on my s6 curve phone. Device information is also not an option on my settings

Didn't work for me either.
I got the Samsung Smart Switch, Reinstalled Driver, Enabled USB Debugging, tried different USB ports, restarted my phone, and the star/pound code was already set to MTP.
I think Samsung just wants me to buy a new phone....

I think Samsung just wants me to buy a new phone. They'd recently had some 'updates' to the phone and that's when it stopped connecting to my computers.
