This article describes how to use the Phone Link app to view your photos and screenshots on your phone in Windows 11.

Windows allows users to use the Phone Link app to link their phones and seamlessly communicate and transfer data.

The Phone Link app lets you instantly access your Android or iPhone apps from your PC. Then, using a Wi-Fi connection or Bluetooth, browse, play, order, chat, and more — all while using your PC’s larger screen and keyboard.

If you want to view or access your photos on your phone and share them with others, you can use the Phone Link app in Windows to download and share them. By default, the Phone Link app will access photos stored in the Camera Roll or Screenshots folders.

You can not access your photos via the Phone Link app stored or saved elsewhere.

View and download photos via Phone Link app on Windows

As mentioned above, you can view and download pictures in Windows and share them with others using the Phone Link app.

However, you can only access your photos if stored in your phone’s Camera Roll or Screenshots folders.

Here’s how to do that.

First, open the Phone Link app.

You can do that by clicking on the Start menu -> All apps -> and selecting Phone Link.

Alternatively, click the Phone Link background app icon on the Taskbar (Taskbar overflow) to open.

When the app opens, click the Photos button on the menu.

You see a thumbnail of photos and screenshots on the screen from your linked phone. Then, using the menu options, you can Open, Copy, Save as, Share, Delete, and more with each photo you view.

From there, you can download and share photos from your phone to your computer and do whatever you want with the images.

That should do it!
