Questions and Answers

I cannot pair an Android device with a new computer with the Windows 10 OS?

I have a new computer, and I am trying to download photos from the phone to PC. The new computer doesn't seem to be reading the Android device. I am still unfamiliar with Windows 10, and I have growing pains and what not.
