Where is the MTP and PTP option in Android 9?

I checked

where is the option to enable MTP?

and it's not there.

I have a Moto G7 Power. I don't know if that makes a difference.

I see there is a command line option How Do I change from PTP to MTP mode? Cannot find options in settings

But i'm looking for the GUI option

I think they moved it from settiings..storage. as it was there on an old phone.
I tried tapping build number 7 times, I can't see developer options.


an answer from barlop https://stackoverflow.com/questions/16596877/android-studio-doesnt-see-device/18515360#18515360 mentions that it's now in developer options

i can see developer options now, (And FWIW I turned on USB debugging). but they moved the sectoin to MTP from the 'input' section of developer options to elsewhere in 'developer options',

To find the USB options now, there is a search within developer options, search for USB

and you see USB controlled by, or USB preferences.. And it's there
