How to link your iPhone or Android to Windows 10 PC

Windows 10 is among the best desktop operating systems we have ever seen in recent years. Microsoft has never stopped improving its operating system since the launch day in an attempt to add up to a better user experience. Back in October, Microsoft officially released the Fall Creators Update to users worldwide following six months of beta testing.

The Fall Creators Update is not a significant update, but there are a lot of exciting features that make your daily activities much easier. One such feature lies in the ability to link your iPhone or Android to your Windows 10-based computer, so you can pick up what you left off on your computer.

This article walks you through the steps to connect your iPhone or Android to your Windows PC. Before we begin, make sure you now have the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update installed on your PC. You can open Settings, select Update & Security and check for updates.

How to link your iPhone or Android to Windows 10 PC

Step one: First off, open the Settings app on your PC. To do this, right click the Start Menu and select Settings from the list of options

Step two: Once you are in, locate Phone and click on it (make sure you are already signed into your Microsoft account)

Step three: Now just simply click Add a phone under the Your Phone section and then enter your phone number (make sure you enter your number correctly)

Step four: Hit the Send button. Once you do that, you will receive a message from Microsoft on your phone. This message contains a link that asks yout to install Microsoft Edge (Microsoft’s new web browsing platform)

Step five: To establish the connection, you need to install the Edge and then sign into your Microsoft account (Note that Microsoft Edge app may not be available in your region, so if you now live in an unsupported country, you will not be able to link your mobile device to your PC)

Step six: Once you are done, restart your PC. When your device finishes booting up, open the Settings app, select Phone and you should see your device under the Your Phone section (If you don’t see anything, make sure you repeat the above process to establish the connection).

Once you are done, you now can share your content from your phone to computer. To do this, open the Edge on your computer, hit the Share button and select the device you wish to share your webpage with.
