You'd be surprised the number of folk who come straight on here without even trying a restart. Our brain examining software on here is a bit iffy.

I'm having trouble with your subject line. Does it normally come up in the browser?

Is it showing as a drive when plugged in?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Internet Explorer is a web browser, what you are talking about is Windows Explorer, two very different programs.

I don't know what caused your S5 not to show up any more but try installing Samsung Kies. It helps your phone communicate with Windows better.

Yes, Internet Explorer threw me too (see #3), I'd never heard of a phone coming up there.

I get that all the time at work, people always confuse the two.

Yes indeed although in those cases it doesn't tax the brain too much to use Google and get the terminology right and avoid confusion.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
