I do not think this is phone specific, but I am working with an older Pixel 3XL (running stock 11)

I upgraded my home Laptop, an HP Envy to the latest Windows 11 Beta. And after doing so, my phone is no longer recognized 'properly'.

When I plug it in, if I switch the USB settings to PTP, windows will recognize it and show the camera.

But if I switch it to File Transfer, Windows does see anything? I can hear the Windows beep/sound that it switched over, but nothing shows up.

I have attempted to update and reinstall the google usb drivers, but no change. And I also noted that the Windows 11 machine seems to show 'waiting for device' with fastboot commands as well.

Has anyone else has a similar experience?

I've not had any issues like that with Windows 11.
I've connected several different android devices, not the Pixel 3 though.
Open device manager and see how it's listed.

Have you tried installing Google's USB driver?
