This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off showing photos from your Android phone in the Phone Link app for your account on your Windows 10 or Windows 11 PC.

With the Phone Link app on your PC linked to your Android phone, you can view and manage photos you've taken on your Android phone on your PC.

To minimize network bandwidth and maximize performance, the Phone Link app on your PC will only show your 2,000 most recent photos and screenshots from your Android device.

The Phone Link app on your PC can only show photos that are in the Camera Roll or Screenshots folders on your Android device. If you moved or saved your photos to a different folder, they will not appear in the Phone Link.
