Method 1: Transfer Files from PC to Android via Bluetooth

If you’re only transferring a few pictures or documents, Bluetooth is the way to go. Most PCs these days have built-in Bluetooth modules, allowing users to transfer files from PC to Android or vice versa.

As mentioned, you can only transfer a few files at a time (like 2-3) since Bluetooth is slow. Yes! It takes a lot of time if you transfer many files with large file sizes. Not to mention, it’s prone to disconnection and pairing issues.

Step 1

Enable Bluetooth on both devices. On Android, go to Settings and tap Connections > Bluetooth. Then, toggle it on and set it to Everyone to make it discoverable.

On your PC, go to Settings > Devices. There, toggle on Bluetooth. You should see the Android phone listed there, click on it to pair. Accept the request on your Android afterward.

Method 2: Transfer Files from PC to Android via USB Cable

Well, if you’re transferring multiple files of various sizes, doing it wirelessly via Bluetooth is not a good option. You need to transfer them directly from your PC using a compatible USB cable. This is the traditional way.

However, you need to manually select and transfer the files to the Android phone, which can be a hassle if you have too many of them. Not to mention, transfer speeds may not be consistent.

Step 1

Connect your Android phone to your PC. Then, scroll down from the notification bar and enable USB File Transfer (or a similar option). The computer should detect the device right after.

After that, just wait until the transfer is complete. Just make sure not to touch or disconnect the USB cable while it’s ongoing.
