Default Android files not showing in pc on ver 6 heres how to fix!

Posted this in case it is of help to anyone with this problem

Upgrade your android device from version 5 to the new version 6?
Plug your USB/android cable to explorer and you won't see any files.

Android up to version 5 you run the USB/nexus cable to a USB port on your PC and File explorer instantly finds all the files on the Nexus and displays them.

Android is now updating to version 6 and if you do the same as above you will not see any files at all, what you have to do is swipe down on the nexus charging logo and select USB for file transfer, then the files will appear!

Not only that but you have to do this every time you connect the device to a computer. Seems a pointless and backward step to me, furthermore it's not an obvious thing to do and no indication that you need to do this to see your files!
