Connect your Android phone to Windows 10

by Volker Weber

Sketch

You no longer need to be on an Insider build to connect your Android phone to your Windows 10 computer to download photos for instance. Start with the Your Phone app. It will text you a link to this Android app where you need to login. You will connect Android phone and Windows PC through your Microsoft account.

This currently does not do more than transfer recent photos to Windows, but eventually you will be able to do much more.

Way to go to become even close to KDE Connect, which I would see as current benchmark when it comes to phone pc connection.

What is wrong with a USB cable?

USB cables are a faff, there's a good chance you need another app and more. That's what's wrong with them.

TIL: "faff". :-)

I never needed an app on any Android phone to exchange files with any Windows computer. Tested since Android 2.3 and Windows XP.

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
