You can only share your phone's mobile connection over WiFi or Bluetooth. Since the PC you wish to share with is a laptop, it should have both of those available. As far as I know, sharing over USB is not available in Windows 10 Mobile. To enable internet sharing, go to Settings → Network & wireless → Mobile hotspot. See this article for step-...

It was affecting a lot. The builds were slow, apps were crashing a lot.. And the worst was the "on-time" performances. (The longer you were using the build, worst were the performances) so they had to remove the Android-core in W10M. We've since huge perfs improvements since then I know they're currently asking for iOS devs to send their apps to test the ...

Only official Windows 7, 8, 8.1 (desktop versions of Windows) and Windows phone 8.1 can be upgraded to Windows 10. But as it was noted in the comments, Windows 10 is not officially released yet. So personally I would recommend you to install official version of Windows phone 8.1 using WindowsPhone recovery tool or Lumia software recovery tool

The default sync speed is "based on my usage", which can leave it a long while before it syncs back. I'd suggest changing the pc to synchronise "as items arrive" (assuming on power, with non metered internet connection); the phone we'll them notice the change a lot quicker...

It doesn't appear to have a use for most people, other than telling you how wonderful your phone is. Recently an update has been pushed out so that the Photos app can also handle connects from a Windows Phone, and automatically sync new photos and videos (so what the old Windows Phone app could do). When the updated app was installed, the next time you ...

I had a similar issue after Win 10 anniversary update. Plugging phone into USB 3 hub would not recognize the phone (even though it worked before the update). I tried plugging it directly into a USB port on the MB and it recognized the phone, installed the drivers, and connected. AFTER this, I was able to connect via the USB 3 hub, as I had before the ...

I have a Lumia 920 and wasn't able to see my files but the phone was detected. Drivers were missing.

Surface Book runs the PC version of Windows 10 (generally Windows 10 Pro). It does not use Windows 10 Mobile, Windows 10 for IoT, or any other non-PC-focused build of Windows. It uses Intel x86-64 processors (not ARM chips like a phone, IoT device, or Windows RT tablet). It cannot install phone apps (unless they are also available for PC), but it should be ...

Reason 1 : Long time effects The project to run Android apps directly on Windows phone will affect Windows phone ecosystem in a long time basis. This will stop developers from making apps for windows phone since customers will be using Android apps on Windows already. Some may even think that publishing an Android app will be enough since it can run on ...

You can't make an exact copy of your phone image and get it to work on the pc. Even if you were able to bypass a few security measures, you still wouldn't be able to do it because your phone's operating system was compiled for ARM microprocessor and HyperV (this is what the PC uses for the phone emulator) will require an x86 compiled image. The best ...

Seems to simply be a bug in the Windows Phone version of WhatsApp. I've observed the same problem. It's probably not hard to fix - the app is either not saving the associated client correctly or is not retrieving it when it wakes up - but for now I don't actually have a fix. You could try bugging WhatsApp about it, but they may not care given that the OS is ...

4.5 GB of system files? I can guess it's been more than 10 years you have been using your windows phone. What you can try is, if you can afford it, doing a hard reset, to bring back the space taken by the system files to a normal of 3 GB. From the phone go to: Settings > System Setting > About > Reset your phone. Keep the phone plugged in till the ...

Dont forget the offline maps. Quite big, only stored on phone if you have no phone 10 which allows you storing on SD. Managed in settings.

Third-party apps aren't generally granted enough permissions to do a reboot, so I don't know of any Store apps with this ability, but you could do it with a sideloaded (homebrew) application. Alternatively, there are a few operations that require the phone to reboot after doing them. For example, changing the display scaling factor (Settings -> System -> ...

Following steps may help you. Go to C:\Windows\INF Type "wpdmtp.inf" in search bar provided to the right of the address bar in Windows 10. Once you found it, just right click on it and select install. It will take a very few seconds. Connect your device to the pc. Done.

First, try connecting your phone to another PC. This way we will find out where's the problem. If the phone gets recognized on the other PC it means that your PC has the problem. If it doesn't it means that the phone has the problem. If the phone has the problem then you should try a soft reset first, and if this doesn't work a hard reset. A soft reset ...

Seems like for now it's true what Shawn has said - the Phone send data to PC when it's first connected. Apart from plugging in and out, you can obtain the same effect without touching the USB cable - open device manager, find your phone in Removable devices, then right click on it and choose Turn off, then Turn on. The effect will be the same as with ...

Unfortunately this doesn't seem possible. Even restarting Explorer doesn't work. I think the problem is that the phone sends the data to the PC when it's first connected, and after that just doesn't feel the need to update the PC. You can observe this by unplugging and replugging the phone really fast; it won't update because the phone didn't recognize that ...
