Today, technology plays a significant role in our lives. We have access to an increasing number of files as our technology usage expands. These files are either for work purposes or for fun. What happens, though, if we want to move files between platforms? The two most popular operating systems in the world are Android and Windows. Want to send and receive files from them? Here are a few methods for moving files from an Android device to a PC.
The traditional Bluetooth transmission comes to the aid. One of the simplest and most used methods for transferring data from your Android smartphone to the computer is this one. On your Windows computer, press Win + I, then select Bluetooth and Devices, click on Add Devices, and confirm that Bluetooth on your smartphone is turned on and discoverable (refer to the image below). Once the devices are paired, you can trade files by clicking share on any of the devices. As Bluetooth technology is slower than the other wireless alternatives, this could take a while.

Transferring data from your smartphone to the PC is easy and practical. Installing the AirDroid mobile app and signing in with your preferred account are the first steps you need to take. Install the AirDroid app next by visiting the download page. Accept all necessary permissions. All that is needed to do at this point is drag and drop the files to the other device. Start uploading files to the device area of Android so that they can be seen on the system. (The internet connection will determine transfer speed.)
Connecting two devices via USB is the easiest approach to transfer files. Connect the MicroUSB/Type C to your Android smartphone and the USB A to your computer. On your Android device, a popup will appear as soon as you connect them (See the image below, for reference, OneUI is used, the name may defer in others) Once you choose file transfer, you are ready to go. Open the system right away and add the required files.

Bonus Tip: Use Cloud storage/platform
You may also access these files on any system where you can log in to your cloud service and view the files while you’re on the go. This is a practical sharing option for transferring data from Android to PC. There are various cloud services, but let’s use Google Drive as an illustration. Open the Google Drive website or download the desktop version, then instal Google Drive on your Android device. Now begin uploading files to Drive, which can be viewed on any device that has the same login credentials. You can choose any cloud storage service, but be sure to carefully review the terms and storage options.
