Hello,

Follow the procedure below to download your pictures from your phone to your computer.
1.Plug one end of the USB adapter into the phone, and the other end into an available USB port of your computer. Look to the bottom right of the screen and you should see an "Installing Driver..." window pop up. Wait a few minutes to allow the computer to look for a driver for your phone
2.Look for a window to pop up that tells you "Driver was successfully installed." If it never comes up, or instead a window pops up that says "Driver was not successfully installed," it means your computer did not recognize your cell phone. In this case, you'll need to look for the driver. If it did install, skip ahead to Step 5.

3.Install the driver by double-clicking on it. Before you do this, make sure your cell phone is unplugged. After you've installed the driver, plug in the cell phone, and it should be recognized
4.Go to "My Computer." Look for a new drive that has either the brand/model of the cell phone in the name, or simply a picture of the cell phone on the drive. It will probably have the drive name F:, I: or G:. Double-click on it.

5.
Go to Start > File > Settings > Folder Options and select to enable hidden files and folders to be shown. Then go back to your cell phone's folder and look around. You should see a folder with the name "Pictures," "Photos," "images" or a similar name. Double-click on it, and you should see all your cell phone images.

6.
Select images and right-click "Copy." Then go to your desktop and create a new folder by right-clicking and selecting "New Folder." Open up this new folder, right-click and select "Paste." Your images will then be copied from the cell phone to your computer where you'll be able to access them any time.

Take care.

I want to download pic's from phone to laptop


What kind of phone is it?
IPhone = iTunes
Android + most others = Show up as an external drive when you plug them into your computer. Just browse the folders on that drive, find the one containing you pictures and then copy the pictures to your computer.
