    Does Win10 have a native tool for sending files to an Android Phone?


    Is there a way to right click on a file in Explorer and send/share it directly to my phone or has this not been implemented yet by Microsoft? If not, I'd think that many Win 10 users would love to have this feature.

    I've been using an Android app to get this done but would love to be able to just select the files in File Explorer and start the transfer to my phone.

    :)

    Windows 10 and bluetooth file transfer from phone

    Concerning the tedious nature of sending one file at a time between an Android phone and Win10...

    It's still annoying (and not pleasantly workable like Win7), however I have figured out a way to send more than one file at a time. (This assumes you are already paired up between devices, and you already know how to transfer a single file.)

    For Android, from the Play store, download an improved file manager, like File Commander (or another one that allows multiple file selections.)

    • In File Commander, from the Home screen, go to Pictures (or wherever the files are)
    • Once you have a list of files, press on a file you want to transfer, and hold... until the background turns gray. It is now selected, and will remain selected.
    • Now press on another file you want to transfer, hold, etc, like the step above.
    • Repeat the previous step as many times as you want to select more files. (I've successfully done 20 files at one time. There may be some limit on either the sending or receiving side.)
    Once you have all of your files selected, set your Win10 computer to receive a bluetooth transfer.

    Going back to the Android phone... In File Commander, press the triple-dot menu, then share, then bluetooth, and select your Win10 computer

    All of the files will transfer in one shot. You still need to confirm the location of the files in Win10 once the transfer is complete, but you have multiple files transferred at one time. It helps.

    Cortana on Android and sending SMS from the desktop.

    Hello Rick,

    Please provide more information before we proceed.

    • Does this issue occurs while sending message to all phone or is it particular while sending message to specific phone?
    • Does this issue occurs while sending message from phone to Windows 10 desktop?

    You may also try installing the updates for Windows desktop and android phone and check if it works as expected.

    Please post back with the information asked and the result for better suggestion.

    Thank you.
