Windows 10 phone settings allow users to connect their phone to the PC to receive text and photos, manage calls and web pages from their phone. To get the most out of this feature, make sure your PC is up to date and running with the latest version of Windows. You can view current text and photos directly from your phone on your PC. You can also send web pages from your phone to your PC.

  • You can receive real-time notifications from your phone directly to your PC.
  • You can make and receive calls directly from your PC.
  • You can retrieve your phone messages from your PC and answer them with text, GIFs, emoticons and photos without taking your phone out of your pocket.

The Your Phone app on Windows 10, used in conjunction with the Your Phone Companion application on Android and iOS, is the only way to sync photos and text messages from your phone with your Windows 10 PC. You can use the Your Phone on Windows 10 application to read and reply to text messages and view photos on your phone without leaving your Windows 10 PC. The Your Phone application is already installed with the Windows 10 October 2018 and later updates, so there is nothing more to download.

How to Add a Phone using Windows 10 Phone Settings

  1. To connect your phone, open the Settings application on your computer and click or touch Phone.
  2. Sign in to your Microsoft account if you are not already signed in, and then click Add Phone.
  3. Enter your phone number and click or touch Send.
  4. You can expect to receive a confirmation code that will be sent to your phone to log in, but Microsoft will throw you a curveball and send you a link to install Edge instead. To establish the connection between your phone and PC, you need to install Edge and then log in to your Microsoft account.

Restart your PC and your phone will appear in the settings list on the Phone page so you can see that it is connected.

How to Use Your Phone

Once the installation is complete, it’s time to actually use your phone. Here’s a quick guide to the pros and cons of each application.

One of the possible causes is related to the keyboard on the screen of your smartphone. Your phone is designed so that you can access it from your PC using your physical keyboard to connect and answer your messages. I was shocked when I picked up the phone (out of habit) to answer a text saying that the on-screen keyboard had disappeared. If this happens, try searching for “Keyboard” in your phone’s Android settings menu, then make sure there is an option to activate the on-screen keyboard even if your PC is typing. This gives you the freedom to use your phone the way you want, even when it’s connected to your PC.

Don’t forget to check the settings in the Your Phone application in the bottom left corner, where there are options that allow you to send SMS but not MMS images, for example.
