My S21 ultra's USB tethering option is grayed out even after connecting with the data cable.
It went on charging it without giving the options to transfer the data to the computer. 
Please advise.
Thanks.

Try to use a different cable first.

install Samsung drivers for windows. try changing ports (and different cable).

1. Go to Windows Settings and then go to Autoplay Menu. select your device and change the default option from "charging" to "Open File Explorer" option.

2. if this doesn't work then go to Developer Settings and scroll down to the menu that i highlited and go to default USB configuration. then select an option. it should work properly.

How to find Developer Settings:
go to Settings- Software information- and then tapping on "Build Number" multiple times.

NOTE: don't change any other option.20220226_220941.jpg20220226_220915.jpg
