Edit Internet Connection Type Used to Backup Photos App Images on HTC One M8
Edited by Thor, Crystal, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to change what type of internet connection to use to back up files from the Photos application on an HTC One M8.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the power button located on top of the phone. Once the phone has been activated we will see the lock screen.
To unlock the phone, swipe the screen up. Once the phone has been unlocked we will see the home screen, and at the bottom we will see 5 icons. We now need to open the application folder.
We can do that by tapping the icon in the middle, at the bottom of the screen. There is a grid of white dots. This is the icon for the applications folder.
Now that the folder has been opened, we need to find and tap the Photos icon. It is an icon of a shape made up of different colors, and underneath, it says the word "Photos". Your photos application may be in a different location, so look for the icon in your folder. We now need to find the settings menu.
We can find the settings menu by pressing down on the 3 horizontal lines in the top left-hand corner of the screen. It will open up a menu.
We want to tap on "Settings", which will open the settings menu.
We want to press down on the first option, "Backup & sync". This function must be turned on to make changes to this menu.
We must be able to see the word "On" at the top, and the switch must be turquoise. If it's gray, press down on it, and it will become turquoise.
We now need to tap on "Back up photos" underneath "Backup Settings" in turquoise.
Press down on the chosen option. We have two options here, "Over WiFi or mobile network", or "Over WiFi only". This gives us the option to choose when we back up photos. "Over WiFi only" is currently selected, indicated by the turquoise circle on the right-hand side.
Now we can see that this option has changed, and it says "Over WiFi or mobile network".
If we press down on the option again, we can see that the turquoise circle has moved.
This concludes the tutorial on how to edit what type of internet connection to use to back up files from the Photos application on an HTC One M8.
