While some users have got rid of the hassle of USB cable to connect their Android devices to a computer, many others still have to plug it again and again.

Here are methods through which you can move your files to Windows 10 from Android.

File Explorer:

This is one of the easiest ways to move files from Android to Windows 10. Get a micro USB cable and connect it to the computer. Then Go to ‘File Explorer’ to see the accessible storage on your device and tap ‘This PC.’ Now look for “Computer transfer” or “MTP” and move the files.


OneDrive – Cloud Storage lets you store all your personal files in one place, from where you can access them through your Android device, computer or tablet.

This cloud-based file service is fairly simple to use. You can access all of your data from anywhere simply by signing in to your account.

It starts with a 15GB of storage space, but you can get another 500MB by referring it to a friend. If that is not enough too, you can buy 100GB for $1.99 a month a full terabyte a month for $6.99.


Dropbox is the oldest file hosting service used by millions of people across the globe. The standard storage size in it is the just 2GB, but $9.99 will get you 1TB of space for a month. Besides, that it also offers several other extra storage opportunities to its users.

Google Drive:

Google Drive is another file hosting service through which you can move your stuff to Windows 10 from Android. It starts with a 30GB of storage shared across Drive and Gmail but you can buy an unlimited storage plan for $10 a month.


This service actually acts as your personal assistant, allowing you to find files, manage your calendar, ask different things and do much more by creating a connection between your Windows PC and Android device or iPhone.

The syncing between Windows 10 and Android is useful through Cortana Notebook, which manages your interests and favourite places etc. Everything you post in Cortana Notebook appears on the on your Android phone and if you make any change on one device, it will show up when you use the service on the other device.

A problem most of the users face is how to figure out Cortana to enjoy a similar experience on both devices. For that, ‘Phone Companion’ is a useful in-built app in Windows 10 that ensures it works fine in conjunction with the phone.
