Who has time to switch back and forth between two devices constantly? With your Windows 10 or 11 PC, you won't have to because you can connect your Galaxy phone and computer for seamless multitasking using Phone Link and Link to Windows. Easily mirror your phone's screen, view notifications, transfer files and media, and respond to messages and calls. You can also use your favorite Microsoft apps on your phone, sync files between both devices, and combine your calendars.
Note: Available screens and settings may vary by software version and model. The Microsoft Phone Link app is not available on Mac computers.
Before you start
To make linking your phone and PC as easy as possible, make sure your PC is up to date and has a Microsoft account added.
On your PC, select Start, begin typing Check for updates, and then click it when it appears.
Select Check for updates.
Allow all the updates to download and install.
Add a Microsoft account
On your PC, select Start, and then select Settings.
Select Accounts, and then select Your info.
If needed, select Sign in with a Microsoft account instead.
Then, follow the prompts to complete the setup.
The Phone Link app
The Your Phone companion app is now called Phone Link! It provides all the same functionality as the original app but will also let you access Microsoft OneDrive, Microsoft 365, and Samsung Gallery. Plus, you can still make and receive calls and messages as well as check your phone’s notifications right from your Windows 10 or 11 PC. To learn more about the Phone Link app and how it works, you can check out Microsoft’s article.
Link your phone to Windows
If you’re working from home and constantly need to switch between your phone and PC, why not link them together to easily sync documents, pictures, and much more? Your content will appear directly on your PC so you can view and send messages, or read texts on your phone and reply to them later on your computer. Additionally, you can manage notifications from apps and widgets without touching your phone.
First, make sure the Link to Windows feature is enabled on your phone. Navigate to and open Settings, then tap Connected devices, and then tap Link to Windows. Tap the switch next to Link to Windows and follow any on-screen instructions if prompted.
If you have a newer Galaxy phone, it will have the Link to Windows feature built right in, which lets you connect your phone to your computer. However, you can also download it from the Play Store if it's not integrated into your phone.
Next, make sure your Windows 10 or 11 PC has the Phone Link app installed. It should come preinstalled on most models; you can check using this link: www.aka.ms/linkphone. If it's not installed, you can download the app from the Microsoft Store.(Video) Samsung Galaxy Devices: Link To Windows Full Guide

Once you're all set up, your phone and PC typically need to be on the same network for the Phone Link app to work, but you can allow your phone to connect with mobile data. On your phone, open Settings, tap Advanced features, tap Link to Windows, and then turn on "Use mobile data" by tapping the switch.
