    I just plugged in my phone and opened the usb message on my phone and it gave me several choices, including mtp.
    It can depend on which of the 42 models of Galaxy S5 you have and which firmware version you are running.

    I found that this only worked if you were connected to a PC via a USB cable when you did it. If you tried to do it w/o the connection present, even when you select the MTP option, it just goes back to USB charging when you close the Developer Options tool.

    My problem came up, by the way, when I foolishly let a Verizon Windows app "upgrade" my Samsung G901 for me from Android 5.0 to 6.0 . I did it for no good reason. I guess Verizon turns off MTP during a "upgrade" for no good reason. Four hours of frustration followed.

    This thread was a life-saver as my wife wanted her pics moved from the G901F she used in Europe to her US use G900V.
