    How to Link Android Phone to Windows 10 PC


    Linking your iPhone or Android phone to your PC lets you switch seamlessly between your phone and PC. Start a task on one of your devices and continue it on another.

    You can text and see recent photos from your phone, right on your PC. Or if you're on your phone, send webpages straight to your PC.

    You can get more apps on your phone to make it work even better with your PC.

    This tutorial will show you how to link your Android 7.0 (Nougat) or later phone to your Windows 10 PC with your Microsoft account.

    What can you do after you have linked your phone and PC?

    It depends on what kind of phone you have (Android or iPhone) and which apps you install on it. The more apps you install, the more cross-device experiences youll unlock. For the full experience, make sure that you sign in to each app with your Microsoft account. Microsoft is working hard to bring you more apps and experiences soon. Stay tuned!

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
