advanced users can use an FTP client instead of creating a network environment. The best and also free, in my opinion, is Filezilla.

In some cases, on the phone screen you will need to press the “Enable USB storage” button.
Phone memory and SD card in Windows Explorer
In the example above, the connected phone is defined as two removable disks. one corresponds to the memory card, the other to the internal memory of the phone. In this case, copying, deleting, transferring files from the computer to the phone and vice versa is carried out in the same way as in the case of a regular USB flash drive. You can create folders, organize files as you like and perform any other actions (it is advisable NOT to touch application folders, Created automatically, unless you know exactly what you are doing).
Android device is identified as a portable player

After clicking, a menu will appear with a choice of connection.
What to choose from the list? Since we will be transferring images, select the item “Camera” or “Transfer photos” (we highlighted them above in the screenshots). In this case, you will NOT see unnecessary folders of the device file system, which can only interfere. However, if you want to transfer additional files, for example, some folders, then you need to select “File Manager” or “File Transfer”.
What are we doing all this for? Starting with Android 6.0 and higher, access to the file system of the device using a PC or laptop is closed until the user gives the go-ahead. And this was done in order to protect user data, because it will be impossible for third parties to get close to the file system of the device if its desktop is protected by a password or other type of protection. All in all, another useful step towards protecting against Android.
On the desktop of a computer or laptop, open the “Computer” section (or “My Computer”. as it is more convenient for anyone). Find our smartphone and double-click on it with the left mouse button.
Next, we open the internal memory of the device, because photos taken with a smartphone are usually saved on it. If images are saved on a memory card, select it. it will also be displayed.
Here we see only a few elements, the main of which is the DCIM. Digital Camera Images folder, it is in this folder that images taken with a smartphone camera are stored by default. We open it.

Waiting for the transfer of images. It can take some time if there are a lot of photos.
If you need to transfer a photo to a smartphone from a computer, acting in the same way, only the transfer will be carried out from a PC.
Friends! If our site helped you or you just liked it, you can help us develop and move on. To do this, you can:

In some situations, it can be convenient to transfer photos from your phone to your laptop through Cloud Storage. Everything is SIMple here too.
- Install Google Drive, Dropbox or another SIMilar application on your device;
- Run it and register (or log in with an already created account, if any);

To automate the process, use the free Google Photo mobile app. It uploads photos from the DCIM folder to Google Photos, which is easy to access from your computer. If you install the service client on the laptop, the photos taken by the smartphone’s camera will be downloaded to the laptop automatically.
Another way to transfer photos from your phone to your laptop is to use a regular microSD memory card. However, here you also need a card reader to insert the card into the laptop. Otherwise, everything is about the same as in the case of direct connection of the gadget to the laptop.
- Insert a memory card into your phone and copy photos from the DCIM folder to it;
- Remove the memory card from the mobile device and insert it into the card reader;

How to transfer photos from phone to laptop. Step by step instructions
Almost all modern phones are equipped with high-quality cameras that allow you to take photos and high definition. Naturally, in many respects they are inferior to professional means of photography and shooting, but this does NOT interfere with using them at the everyday level. to capture an interesting moment, take a selfie, and the like. There is a special application to view the photos taken and images in general in smartphones, but it is much more interesting to admire the fruits of your creativity on the big screen of your computer or laptop.
In addition, the phone memory is NOT the best place to store photos due to its small size, except from time to time to move files to a spacious memory card. But even so, transferring a photo from a phone to a laptop is often required to edit the footage or create a slideshow / presentation based on it. Today, this kind of transfer can be carried out in completely different ways, and in this article we will present the most convenient ones.
First, let’s see how to download a photo from a phone to a laptop via a cord (aka data cable). As a rule, such a cable is supplied with a mobile device and has two USB connectors. one micro phone and one ordinary one that connects to a charger or, if necessary, to a computer.
To transfer a photo from a mobile device to a laptop, do the following:
- Connect the gadget to the laptop using a cord, and then select the MTP mode and USB debugging;
- In Windows Explorer, follow the path This computer. Device name. Internal memory. DCIM. Camera;
- Use Explorer to copy photos to your laptop.
On different models, the path to the DCIM directory containing the photo may be different, for example, SDcard. DCIM or the second. In any case, look for a folder named DCIM, as this is where Android saves photos by default. If you are using a third-party camera application, check the data save path, if it is different from the standard one.
This method of data exchange is already outdated, so we will only consider it as a fallback. The main disadvantage of this technology is the low data transfer rate, which is why it, in fact, has lost its relevance. To transfer files you need:
- Turn on Bluetooth in both devices and make sure they can see each other;
- Perform Pairing, confirming it with a code;
- On a laptop, right-click on the Bluetooth icon in the tray and select “Accept file”;
- Go to the folder with photos on your smartphone, mark the necessary photos, click “Send” and select Bluetooth from the list of applications;
- Agree on the laptop to accept the sent files.
The above are the main ways to download photos from your phone to your laptop. Which one looks more preferable, decide for yourself. Usually, users transfer photos via a USB cable. there are no pitfalls here, it is enough just to establish a wired connection between the devices. Slightly less convenient is the exchange of data using a removable storage device and via a local network. If automation is more important to you, use the “clouds”. Finally, with small file sizes, it is quite appropriate to transfer via Bluetooth.
