Downloading Photos from phone to PC

Post by Barrysh » Sat Dec 12, 2020 1:29 pm

Hi, my old Samsung Galaxy A3 is full. Probably all the photos and videos of the grand kids. How do i download them to my pc. I have done it before from my camera and camcorder but never from a phone. Didn't come with any lead but might have something that will fit. Pensioner so please be gentle with me.

Hi Barrysh
Find a cable which fits your phone and has a usb connector on the other end. Plug this into your computer which may then find your phone as a storage device. Make sure your phone is turned on and if asked that you wish to connect to your computer. Your computer may also ask if you trust the phone - click on yes.
If this all works you may then have to open the folder on the phone shown on your computer to find the photos - these you can then copy or move to your computer hard drive.

Thanks for that. I'll have a go tomorrow. Even I could understand your answer.
