Oreo won't let me transfer files

Ever since the Oreo update, I have been unable to transfer files from my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge to my PC; Windows 7. I have restarted the phone and the PC. I have gone into my phone's settings under Connections and turned on Phone Visibility, but whenever I try to transfer files, I still get "Window Explorer is not responding" or a message that the device isn't working. I have gone into Disc Management on the PC and my phone is not listed.

Please help.  Thanks

Have you pulled down the notification shade and changed the USB mode from charging to file transfer?
