4 Ways To Transfer Files From Android To PC

The great thing about owning an Android device is that you can do almost anything with it. You can record a video with it, take photos, or even edit documents on it using Microsoft Word. When the time comes to transfer this data to your PC you have various options to consider. In this post we will be discussing the 4 common ways to transfer a file from Android to PC.

USB Cable

This is one of the first methods that you should consider if you want to transfer your phone files to your computer. This is especially useful if you are transferring huge amounts of data such as video files.  Some things to consider when using this method
1. Use the USB cord that came with your phone.
2. As much as possible connect your phone to the USB 3.0 port of your computer for faster data transfer.

Cloud Storage

Another way to transfer files from your phone to the PC is by using a cloud based storage solution. The top choices I recommend are Google Drive, Dropbox, and Onedrive. Just install the app of the cloud solution of your choice to your phone and PC then you will be able to easily access your phone files on both devices.
Take note that although the cloud service providers I mentioned are free they only provide a limited amount of space. If you would like additional space then you will have to subscribe to a plan.


If the files that you would like to transfer are not that large then you can email it to yourself as an attachment. Just open the email message in your computer and download the attachment from there.


If your PC has a Bluetooth feature then you can use this for file transfers. Just pair your phone and your PC then you will be able to transfer files between both devices.

There you have it, the top 4 ways to transfer a file from your Android phone to your computer. The next time you want to transfer a file from your phone just choose one of the four methods I mentioned.
