Hi, you can access only multimedia content on PC.
If you want to transfer data, Smart switch software can be used to backup the phone data to PC.
please visit the below link to connect your Galaxy S21 Ultra to Windows 10.
Hi muskokacam, there are 2 ways to connect your S21 Ultra with your Windows 10.
1. Link to Windows
- You can turn on from Settings -> Advanced features -> Link to Windows
Then from your Windows 10, Open Settings, search Link your phone. You can hook up with your phone with Windows 10 there. You will able to see your phone and manage Text Message, Gallery and even open your phone app. You can copy and paste files between 2 devices.
- You can also enable DeX on Windows desktop too. You need to go to
Install the DeX software for Windows. Then use the USB cable plugin to your S21 Ultra. You can have DeX running on your desktop. You can manage your phone with desktop experience. You can also drag and drop files between 2 devices too.
Hope these suggestions help.
DeX, I use USB cable for connection (fast and stable 😊). USB cable will also charge my phone too. And I can access my phone storage from explorer. The UI also easy to use and also support drag and drop. Only thing that may complain is...not every app may open correctly, for instance, facebook app not working good in DeX mode and screen resolution not support 4K.
For the features, both about the same and both can manage the phone easily while using Windows. I have been using desktop DeX for few years now almost everyday. Love it when you are talking on the phone using Buds Live, checking Calendar on the phone, then copy files from PC to phone. Texting with other people and whatsapp with friends at the same time. All can be done at the same time.
Link to Windows need to be on the same network. Can't use it in hotspots. Desktop DeX with USB cable, I can use it anywhere without network too. And I can use my phone as a hotspot for my laptop. I just like this combination, works for me. I know some other members like using DeX docking too. But not my style 😜.
