You’re looking at a web page in your phone, but you actually want to access it on your PC for additional in-depth viewing. Perhaps it’s a long article that’s simpler to read on your laptop or maybe it’s a web form that’s difficult to fill out using a touch screen keyboard and your phone’s relatively small screen. Largest, Windows 10 (since Fall Creators Update) makes it simple to transmit web pages from any Android phone or tablet to Windows 10.
The good news is it’s easy to send web pages from the phone browser, whether you’re using Chrome, Samsung’s browser, Firefox or Microsoft Edge for Android. The bad news is that those same pages will only open in Microsoft Advantage on your PC so, if you don’t want to use Edge whatsoever, this feature may not interest you (you can use Chrome’s synchronized history feature instead if you work with Google’s browser on both devices). When sending web pages from phone to PC, you also have a choice of either opening that URL on your computer immediately or tapping “Continue later” which sends the web address like a Windows notification that you could click when ready.
How you can Link Your Phone with Windows 10
Before you send any web pages between devices, you must first link your phone together with your PC. To link your phone to windows 10, perform the following:
1. Navigate to Settings on your Windows PC.
2. Select Phone.
3. Click “Add a telephone.”
4. Enter your telephone number and click Send. Then click the Close button.
Your phone will receive a text message having a connect to download Microsoft Apps.
5. Click the link you received by SMS and use it to install the Microsoft Apps app. Skip this task for those who have already installed Microsoft Apps on your phone.
How to Send an internet Page from Your Phone to Windows 10
1. In your phone, visit the web site you wish to send to your PC (presumably you already visited it before you decided to send it).
2. Open the proportion menu if you work with Chrome or any browser except Edge for Android.
In Edge only, simply click the telephone icon at the end (or top) from the screen and skip to step four.
3. Select “Continue on PC” in the share menu.
4. Choose the Windows 10 computer you want to open the web page right away to or click “Continue later” if you want to send the URL as a notification instead.
If you choose your personal computer, the page opens immediately inside a new tab in Edge. Should you click “Continue later,” the PC will show the page title within the notification center where you can click it when you’re ready.
