How to Send Links to a Windows PC from Your Android Phone


Both Windows and Android are extremely popular. Naturally, many people use both platforms on a daily basis. We’ll show you how to send links between your phone and PC with Microsoft’s Your Phone app, built into Windows 11 and Windows 10.

You can do a lot with Microsoft’s Your Phone app if you have an Android device. It can control music on your phone, mirror notifications to your PC, send text messages from your PC, and more. It’s not useless on your phone, though.

Before you begin, make sure that the Your Phone experience is set up on your Windows 11 or 10 PC and Android device. The Your Phone app will already be installed on your PC, the companion app can be installed from the Play Store.

With that out of the way, you’ll first need to find a link to share. You can use any web browser, such as Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge. We will use Chrome in this example.

Go to a webpage.

Next, find the sharing option. In Chrome, it’s under the three-dot menu icon. Some browsers have a share icon in the toolbar.

Go to the share option in the browser.

The share menu will open with all available apps. Find “Your Phone Companion” and select it.

To select "Your phone companion."

A pop-up window with a list of your connected PCs will appear. Select the device you want to send the link to.

Select your Windows computer.

The link will immediately open in your default browser on your PC. If the PC is not running, a notification will appear when you turn it on.

Link shared successfully.

That’s all we can say about it! It’s a quick and easy trick, but it can be faster than syncing tabs and it’s much easier than copying and pasting links or emailing each other.
