Why I see empty folder when I connect my phone to my pc

This is what happened to me few times with my Samsung Galaxy S5 mini. And I think it happens to other Samsung phones too. When I tried to connect to my PC or laptop it was showing empty folder only. Like the picture below.

What is the solution?
Well, it is very simple. First unlock your phone then connect to the PC or laptop. I think this (empty folder) is for security and privacy reason. That's why the computer does not want to show your stuffs to someone else. I mean if it shows then it would be very easy for other people to access your stuffs. Just by connecting your phone to other PCs.

By unlocking your phone. I meant turn it on and unlock it by putting password, slide or finger print what ever you have set to unlock your phone.

That's all. I wanted the tips to be nice and simple, that's why I don't like to put too many other stuff in it. Please let me know if it helps you. Thanks
