Home More advice Computers & Tech

So i got my new phone today, basically to cut it short when i connect my phone to my laptop using the USB cable, it will charge so it is obviously recognising it however it doesnt always show up on my laptop that its connected, as in i cant transfer files or keep it together. Yet it still charges/ What could be the issue?
