Problem transferring files

I'm trying to transfer files from my Android A52-5G to my Linux (Ubuntu 22.04) computer. I plug the phone into a USB port and the computer finds the phone no problem and correctly identifies it. As soon as I activate USB Tethering on the computer the phone immediately disappears from the device list. How do I transfer files from the phone to the computer?
