    Keeping Phone Link app open on desktop


    Phone Link app in Windows 10 works fine as long as the window is open and displayed but if the window is minimized or even just behind another window for a few minutes it closes. Then when I get a notification of a text message and I open Phone Link it takes a while to reconnect and refresh. Why won't it stay open?

  2. Your Phone App - Link to Windows not working

    Has anyone found the secret to getting the Your Phone - Link to Windows App working correctly?
    Looking at the number of posts in other forums saying they have problems there is clearly a major issue with this App. It's a pity because it used to work quite well before recent Windows updates.
    Basically my phone (Samsung A515) will connect to Your Phone on my PC and I can see the headers of Notifications on my PC. If I try to read Messages or access Photos or open Desktop Apps it says I need permissions and asks me to click on a link to send a permission request to my phone. It never arrives. I don't see any permission request. Also it doesn't say what permissions are missing nor how to enable them.
    The response from MS is always to ensure that your phone and PC Apps are at the latest version (they are). I suspect there is a major bug in this App, yet others seem to suggest that it does work. Hopelessly confused.

    I think I'll put a list of people's favourite apps in the OP, starting with my own until I get some suggestions, but you can take a look at the Windows Phone app store at the top apps to see what's popular http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store

    Windows Phone app for Desktop

    Hi Peter!

    Thanks for writing on the Windows Phone 8 forum.

    If I have understood the issue the Windows Phone Desktop app is still not detecting your phone.

    Try to check if the Windows Phone Desktop App is present between the Windows Firewall exceptions. In order to that it follow the steps below:

    • Click on Star.
    • Click on Control Panel.
    • Click on Windows Firewall.
    • Click on the link “Permit a program or feature to work through Windows Firewall”.
    • It will appear a list programs. Make you assured the Windows Phone Desktop App is marked” .
    • Click on Apply and on OK than.
    • Restart the PC.
    Bye,
