Laptop sees phone as driver install, not drive.

    I could not edit a photo. It told me storage low. I checked. It says I'm at 56%. That doesn't seem like to me enough to not show me to save an edited photo 🤷
    So, I go ( for the first time with this new phone) to plug it into the USB port of my laptop to take the 56% of stored photos off the drive to see if that helps. It recognizes the phone, but only as a driver install. I install the drivers. It tells me they are installed. I do not see my phone as a storage drive at all! Why is this so complicated? Any other phone I ever had, mostly Samsung, it just reads as a storage drive without even the need for some fancy drivers. 🤦🤷. What am I doing wrong? I don't see any thing to view what's on my phone on the laptop.
