Rpi4, connect to smartphone with usb cord?

Manjaro ARM 20.06 Xfce on Rpi4

When I connect an android smartphone with a usb cable, the smartphone shows up in the file manager but it does not show any drives or files. The phone appears to be mounted.

In the past, when I connect to the smartphone, I need to select a connection type on the phone. This selection box does not appear on the phone.

Is there a procedure I need to follow when trying to connect a device with a usb cord?

After a few reboots, I was able to get the selection screen for file transfer and the transfer worked, so problem solved.
