I got pictures I have took on my phone. And I have been wondering how to upload them to my computer. I know I plug the USB port to the laptop to the phone and the other end to the phone, but what do I do after that? Do I need to turn off the phone and turn it back on again to do its thing?

Hi Shellina, what phone is it? If it is a smartphone (Android, BB, iPhone or Windows), you could choose an easier way and install Dropbox to automatically grab all your pictures and copy them across :)

Hey Shellina!

As soon as you connect your Android to your computer, you’ll have to check the screen of the phone to make sure you’re being connected.

Once it’s completed, you should see an icon on your computer’s desktop. From that icon you’ll have different files (including picture). From there you’ll be able to transfer your phone’s pictures to your computer.

Using Dropbox is a very good option too!

I hope this helps.
