Part 4: FAQs about Transferring Photos from Android to Computer
Can I copy photos from Google Drive to my computer?
Yes, you can. But the quality will decrease. However, all you have to do is to save your photos or videos on Google Drive and then open it on your computer to download them.
Why won’t Microsoft sync my photos?
You have to make sure your phone and computer are connected well. And the most important thing is that you have to ensure that they are connecting with the same Wi-Fi.
Can I use Bluetooth to transfer photos from Android to a computer?
Yes, you can. But the Bluetooth for transferring files is very unsteady. The process may be cut off often. And that may cause the loss of your photos. So, it would be better not to use Bluetooth.
