How to share files between Tecno phone and PC via Bluetooth?

We can find the stock file transfer and sharing app, XShare File Transfer, on Tecno mobile phones which allows us to quickly share files and documents between Tecno and other phones. It however doesn’t support file sharing between our mobile phone and desktop computer. Today, we will show you how to share files between Tecno mobile phone and PC via Bluetooth. Bluetooth makes it really easy to share files across different devices and platforms. I will use my Tecno Camon 15 and Windows 10 computer below.

Pair Tecno and PC via Bluetooth

Before we can move files between our Android device and desktop (or any other device), we have to pair our devices via Bluetooth. This needs to be done once. Once paired, you can quickly connect the devices and phones, copy files between them in the future without the need to pair them again. It is like how we pair a Bluetooth mouse, keyboard or speaker with a device.

On Windows PC, click the Start menu, choose Settings from the pop-up menu and open it in a new window. Then choose Device > Bluetooth & other devices. Click the ON/OFF toggle to turn on Bluetooth so your PC is discoverable by your Tecno mobile and other nearby devices.

Open Settings on your Tecno mobile phone, go to Connected devices > Bluetooth. Touch the ON/OFF toggle to enable Bluetooth on your cell phone.
