Storage [Q] USB charge only mode?

Hello.
I have a little problem.
When I connect my LG smartphone to my computer with the USB cable, the phone gives me a bunch of options, like MTP, PTP, tethering, and charge only mode. It's awesome.
But, if I connect my Tablet to the PC, the only option the tablet has in mass storage mode.

Is there any software I could install to my tablet (It runs android 4.2.2) or something else so that I'd have all those options just like on my phone? The charge only mode is the most immportant of them all.

Thanks!

connect your tablet to your pc

for tethering goto settings>more settings Tetheting and portable hotspot click that for option

If I touch the thing that pops up in the notifications panel, all I get is this one option, no MTP, PTP or charge only mode

No you cannot get that option for tablet
Because mtp is mass storage
Ptp is camera linked which can transfer files which cannot be transferred by mtp
So I think both mtp and ptp are combined and given as a single option
