Who has time to switch back and forth between two devices constantly? With your Samsung PC, you won't have to because you can connect your Galaxy phone and computer. Use your favorite Microsoft apps on your phone, sync files between both devices, combine your calendars, and so much more.

Note: Available screens and settings may vary by software version and model.

Connect your phone and PC

To make your phone and PC work together as one, all you need to do is download the Microsoft Launcher app and follow some simple steps.

On the PC, click the Start icon, and then click the Settings icon. Click Phone, and then click Add a phone. Enter your phone number, and then click Send. On your phone, open the text message, and open the link. Install Microsoft Launcher, and then open it. Tap Get started and follow the on-screen instructions. Sign into the same Microsoft account that is registered on the PC. Finally, tap Let's go.

Now your phone and PC are connected! You'll have access to some Windows 10 apps and features, such as Microsoft Office, Sticky Notes, and even Cortana. You can even instantly sync files, photos, and messages.

Note: The Microsoft Launcher app may ask you to change your UI. If you agree, your phone's interface will look slightly different. You can access your phone's regular apps by swiping up and tapping the white icon with the six dots.

Link to Windows

Note: The Your Phone app can be downloaded and used if your phone does not have the Link to Windows feature.

If you have a Note10 or an S10, it will have the Link to PC feature built right in, which lets you connect your phone to your computer.

With this feature, you can view your recent photos and send messages using your PC. Or you can read texts on your phone and reply to them later on your computer. Additionally, you can manage notifications from apps and widgets without touching your phone. Learn more about Link to Windows to set it up.
