Moving files from PC to your mobile device (Android/iOS) depends on the format of the file you want to move to your device.
Looking at the Menu on your PC browser, you’ll find icons and you’ll surely know what they mean, if you’d like to move a Video that is in your PC to your Android.

  • To move a video file, Click the Video Icon in the Menu found by the Left side.
  • For Mp3 songs, click the MP3 icon there, etc.
  • For Unknown files, click the folder icon displayed below. You can also move any type of file by using the Folder icon.

Another amazing idea about this is that you can Install on App directly from your PC into your Phone by clicking the Apps icon.

Here’s how I used Xender to send a movie from PC to my mobile phone using the Folder icon:

a. After clicking the folder icon on PC, select the destination folder in your device, precisely where you want to move the file to.

b. Click the Upload, find the file you want to move

c. Use All Files(*.*) option  in your PC upload options to view all file types,
When you find the file, double click the file you want to upload to your Phone.

If you can’t find the file you want to move from your PC to phone, take note of the File name, copy it, when you reach step (c) , paste the file name with file extension (e.g – Myimportantfile.txt ) and hit open.

Check your Android device; You’ll notice a Red download icon when you tap it, you’ll see something like the screenshot below which shows the file is moving to the phone.

Once you’re done, you can click “Disconnect” on the Xender app on your Android device.
