My Galaxy S6 is working (text alerts still going off etc)

This answer was rated:

My Galaxy S6 is working (text alerts still going off etc) but the screen has completely failed. I am desperately trying to retrieve my photos. I have unlocked it via "Find My Mobile" and am trying to use Samsung Smart Switch, but it tells me that USB file transfer is not allowed. Is there anything I can do, given that I cannot change anything on the phone as I cannot use the touch screen?

Hi there and welcome

Can you please hold the power button for 60 seconds then release.

Then hold the Volume UP and power buttons until you see a menu

Are you able to see this menu?
