Hi,

To begin, add your phone by going to Windows Settings > Phone > Add a phone and follow the instructions. Next, install Your Phone Companion on your Samsung phone. Alternatively, swipe down the notifications center and select Link to Windows.

Open the app on your phone and select Is there a QR code on your PC? or Link your phone and PC. On your PC, check Yes, I finished installing Your Phone companion and click on Open QR code.

After you scan the code, grant the required permissions to the Your Phone Companion app, then in the "Allow the connection" screen, select Allow to sync your Samsung with your PC.

Follow the last instructions given by the Your Phone app. You should now have access to your phone from your PC and you can choose to transfer your photos.
