Transferring photos from Motog4 to computer


I just got a Moto g4 phone, and want to transfer photos from it to my Windows 10 computer. When I attach via usb cable and go to the device it indicates “this folder is empty.” Do I need to unlock somehow?

When we had a first generation Moto g, connecting to the computer via usb always brought up the memory and I could open DCIM or other files.

You can also set Google Photos to free up space on your device by deleting backed up photos from the phone:
