Download and Install
Android File Transfer for Windows computer
Note: If we are searching for Android File Transfer software for Windows, then we don't need extra software to connect our Android device. The Android device and Windows simply plug and play functionality using a USB cable.
Swipe the finger from the top of the screen, and view the notification about the current USB connection. At this stage, it probably tells us our phone is connected only for charging.
Tap the notification and select "File transfer" or "Transfer files" in the menu which appears. Once we made our selection, go to our desktop and open up a File Explorer window using the method, which makes the most sense for our Windows configuration.

Once the AndroidFileTransfer application is placed on the Mac, then plug our phone into our computer and turns the phone's screen and unlock the device. After that, look at the USB status notification. Tap the notification and select the "Transfer files" or "File transfer", then the Android File Transfer program automatically opens on our Mac.
It the Android File Transfer programs don?t work properly for us, we have an alternate third-party app called Commander One Pro.

Android File Transfer for Chrome OS computer
As similar to the Windows system, we can connect our Android phone to the Chromebook by using any USB port. After that, tap the USB charging notification on the phone and then select "File transfer" of "Transfer files". If we want our phone to act as a camera then select "Transfer photos" or "PTP", this will extremely focus on multimedia files.
This system facilitates us to keep back-up of all our phone's media files to Google Drive if we allow. We can also dismiss it and simply drag and drop files in either direction as needed.
