The most likely problem
If your phone still isn’t connecting with your PC the most likely problem for most users right now is Windows Firewall blocking the connection. You need to create a rule in Windows Firewall for ui32.exe, if you know how to do this, great, but if you don’t keep reading.
Finding your exe directory
A File Explorer window will open, from here open the folder named bin.
Now right click the bar at the top and select Copy address as text
The address will now be saved to your clipboard, you will need this in the next step.
Making the Firewall rule

In the advanced settings window select Outbound Rules on the left then click New Rule… on the right
The rule wizard will open, on the first screen make sure the Program option is selected then click Next
Now select This program path and then click browse. In the File Explorer window that opens click the bar at the top once and then paste the address we copied earlier and press enter.
