Share files between Windows and Android using AirDroid

Transferring files from your Android smartphone to your Windows PC, or vice versa, used to be a tricky affair earlier. You connected your phone to the PC via a USB cable, looked over the file system till you found what you were looking for, and then copied with the hope that nothing disconnected or hung in the process. Alternatively, you used the slow file transfer process to share files over Bluetooth, after first pairing the two devices. Thankfully, with the evolution of apps, this process of sharing files from Android to a Windows device has become an easier affair.

Download AirDroid desktop and Android app from the AirDroid website. Register on the app, and then sign in using the same credentials on the Windows app as well. Ensure that you’re connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Your smartphone and Windows computer will shop up under the My Devices section in both applications. You can now drag and drop/ attach the files you want to share.
