    PC does not show the tablet's content

    the new Lenovo tablet is shown in the PC (windows 10) as "MTP USB device", but clicking on it gives "this file is empty", i.e., cannot read the tablet's content and cannot download anything thereto.
    Device Manager does identify the tablet but tells me that "device requires further installation". from there i am lost. looked at Google but got nowhere.
    please advise.
