How to set Windows Link with Samsung Galaxy Note 10?

ByJoe Horner 2019-08-26 945

Samsung and Microsoft began to build a closer partnership this year, and with the launch of Samsung Galaxy Note 10, we have a new "Windows Link" service. This is a more advanced and convenient way to establish continuity between Galaxy Note 10. Turn on Galaxy Note 10 and the computer running Windows, giving you instant access to notifications, messages, and even photos.

The following is a quick guide to how to set up Windows Link on Samsung Galaxy Note 10, which contains some of the more concise features that the service must provide

Set up Windows Link on Galaxy Note 10

1. Pull down the notification bar and click "Link to Windows"

2.Log in using the same Microsoft account that you logged on to your computer.

3. On your computer, download the "Your Phone" application from Microsoft Store.

4. Start the “Your Phone” application on your computer and click “my computer is ready”. If you need any help during the login process, please click "tell me how".

That's it. Now your phone and Windows computer are connected! Here are some simple features you can take advantage of:

●Read notifications on your computer

Notifications are synchronized between Galaxy Note 10 and your computer after using Windows Link. When you first connect, select the “Notification” tab in your phone application, and then select “Open Settings” for me to display the notification access settings on your phone. Find your phone partner in the list of applications and allow them notification access. When finished, the incoming notification is displayed on your computer.

Depending on the type of notification, you can perform different actions. For example, you can reply to incoming messages in applications such as Facebook Messenger and Viber. You can also clear notifications one by one or at the same time, just like on a mobile phone. If you find excessive spam notifications, you can filter applications that want to view notifications on your computer by clicking ”Custom” in your phone application.

●Read and reply email

By selecting the “messages” tab on your computer, you will be able to access messages on Galaxy Note 10. From there, you can read, reply, and create new messages. You can also send MMS attachments, including pictures and GIF, but keep in mind that this is not an online messaging application, so a carrier fee will be charged.

●View and share photos

Select the “Photo” tab to access images on Galaxy Note 10, including photos and screenshots. Keep in mind that the number of images available is currently limited to 25, but may be expanded in future updates. On this screen, you can easily view photos on your computer by double-clicking; save them to your computer by selecting “Save as” from the right-click menu; or share them again from the right-click menu.

Unfortunately, so far, you can't send images from your computer to Galaxy Note 10.

●Direct control Galaxy Note 10 by computer (upcoming)

Samsung Flow allows you to access any connected device directly from your computer, which is a very convenient feature. All you have to do is click “Smart View” and your phone screen will appear in a separate window. You can then interact with it freely using the mouse. This feature is still not available in Windows Link, but a new promotional video from Samsung indicates that it is being released.

In the video (embedded above), you can see that there is a phone screen tab in the PC companion application. It's still not available in the version you can download from the Microsoft store, but it may be on its way. When it comes out, you will be able to see the phone screen on your computer and possibly interact with it.

Keep in mind that, Windows Link has just been released recently, so it's far from final. Samsung said the list of features would be significantly increased in the upcoming update.
