Xfer files from Windows 10 computer to Moto G5 Plus


Trying to transfer music files to new Moto G5 Plus from a WIndows 10 laptop. Once connected by USB, it seems to recognize the phone (a Moto G (5) Plus folder appears), but when I select it the right side of Windows Explorer window says the folder is empty. This used to be straightforward with my Moto G 1st gen. How to do this?

I expect I will have similar problems moving photos from the phone to the computer.


Slide down the notification shade and tap on “USB for Charging”…change it to
"USB for File Transfer"…and you should be able to see the folders from the Computer.
