You do not have to use the Windows Phone software to copy music, pictures, and videos to your phone. You can also use File Explorer (known as Windows Explorer in Windows 7 and earlier versions) to drag and drop content directly to your phone. The exact steps that you use vary depending on the operating system you are running on your computer. The procedures in this section are based on Windows 8, although these steps are similar for previous Windows versions.

The following sections show how you can add music to your phone and then remove it, but the procedures are identical for working with videos and pictures. The only difference is which folders you select to copy files from and where you place them on the phone. For example, to add a photo from your PC to your phone, instead of copying to your Windows Phone’s Music folder, you copy it to the phone’s Pictures folder.

Adding Media to Your Phone

The easiest way to add media to your phone is to simply drag and drop items from your collection. To do so, you must connect your phone to your computer or tablet using a USB cable. However, the Windows Phone software is not required. After you’ve connected your phone, follow these steps:

1. Open a File Explorer window on your Windows desktop and click Computer in the Navigation pane.


Opening File Explorer

You can open File Explorer in any version of Windows by holding down the Windows key on your keyboard and pressing E.


2. Double-click Windows Phone. (If Windows Phone doesn’t appear here, check to make sure it’s properly connected to your computer.)

3. Double-click the Phone folder and then the folder for the type of media you want to add (in this case, Music).

4. Open a second File Explorer window (WinKey+E) and select the media library containing the files you want to copy.

5. Right-click the content you want to copy. This can be individual files or a folder that contains multiple pieces of media.

6. Chose the Copy command from the shortcut menu.

7. Switch back to the other open copy of File Explorer. Right-click inside File Explorer and choose the Paste command from the shortcut menu. The content you copied is then accessible from your Windows Phone.

Missing Media

If you copy the wrong kind of media to a folder—for example, music files to a video folder—Windows Phone 8 will either ignore the file or generate an error when you try to play it.
