USB Debugging Mode

A number of important features are hidden in an Android smartphone’s secret menu called Developer Options. Among these features that are used more often is the USB debugging. 

When enabled, USB debugging will allow the phone to communicate with a computer and vice versa over a USB connection.

As a result, the phone is able to receive files and commands from the computer. The computer will also be able to pull crucial information from the phone including log files, photos, videos and the like.

To enable USB debugging mode on an Android smartphone, you will need to unlock its parent menu — the Developer Mode. After that, you can go ahead and scroll to find USB debugging from the list of options and then toggle its switch to the ON position.

Should you need some input on how to get this done on your Galaxy M51, I’ve laid out a quick walkthrough as follows.
