Transferring files wirelessly between a Samsung Galaxy Smartphone and a Windows 10 computer is easy to do.
This includes pictures, videos, and any other files on your device, both small and large.
A free app called Samsung Flow can be installed on both a PC and smartphone, and files can be transferred quickly and easily.
Samsung Flow is available from the Google Play Store and the Microsoft Store, making it easy to install.
While mainly for Samsung Galaxy users, the app also works on other Android smartphones and devices.
There are a few steps to the setup but nothing complicated.
The basic setup is to install the app on the phone and Windows 10 PC, set a shared folder, and then share files.

It is free and created by Samsung for Galaxy smartphone users but will likely work on other Android devices.
While it likely will work on other Android smartphones, I have not tested this yet.
The App works very well transferring all file types and sizes including very large files.
There is a bit of a quick set up with mainly setting a shared folder so the files can be found on the Windows 10 computer.
