How does it Work?

Start on your phone, continue on your PC. With the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, you can continue browsing websites from your phone directly on your Windows PC. You can even choose to "Continue now" if you're in front of your PC or "Continue later" if you're on the go! Make sure you’re set up. If you haven’t already, link your phone and PC with the latest version of Windows 10. To finish linking your phone and PC, make sure that you: 1) Have the latest Windows 10 Fall Creators Update build installed on your PC 2) Link your phone from your PC. On your PC, select Start > Settings > Phone, then select Add a phone to get started.

  • Does not appear as option

    By Blakhol420
    Does not appear as option and after three days now of installing and reinstalling and reading everything possible there is to read on the subject, occasionally iPhone to pc will just not work together with no expectation and zero support to assist in manually making it work. The manual option is also one of those things that occasionally does not work so if you fit into both of those categories like I do then your simply screwed and life goes on. It would be nice to focus more emphasis on these cases to help with this apparent bug since it either works perfectly or it doesn’t! My opinion is this is tied in with all the other apps that do not work for me that are Microsoft pc and iPhone related! Honestly makes me want to just get a Mac that will work with my iPhone that I know will have support that is dedicated to helping! Bill Gates, unfortunately as much as I idle you, only one star for you today my dear friend! 3 days of fighting this with no support is enough for me! In 6 more days I am to receive a phone call! Don’t bother! I don’t have another 6 days to give you. Sorry! Sincerely Albert Canales
  • Works As Advertised! Perfectly. Read the instructions

    Step 1. Go to Start>Settings >Phone>Enter your phone number without dashes and send link to get app. Step2: Follow app to App Store. Automatically you will be directed to Continue on PC. Download it. Step3: open browser on PC Step4: open website on iPhone Step5: Press middle button on control row to bring up functions. Step6: Select Continue on PC from top row on far left. Step7: Continue on PC will search for available PC’s WILL find one and ask if you want to continue now or later. Your choice. You might as well select now since you went through all these steps. You might as finish the job. Step8: Your iPhone’s current webpage will magically appear on the browser that you already opened on your PC. Just open it to a Home screen, any one will do, besides it’s going to change in less than a minute. So there you have it. All of you one star reviewers can follow these steps and make this app work as it was designed to work. Graceful and simple and straightforward. The melding of OS’s. Steve Jobs would be spinning in his grave if he knew this was happening to his beloved OS. Cheers, it’s time for a beer.
  • Doesn’t work but other reviewers are stupid

    By Cameron0208
    This app doesn’t work. Period. However, the ‘Continue on PC’ feature has been integrated into Microsoft Edge The user who is all bent out of shape about having to sign into their MS account because the same functionality could be achieved using a local device... Please explain how. This service (in Edge, not the app) works by assigning an ID number to a user and their session, which is handled in the cloud. When you send a session from one device to another, the system uses that ID# to restore the session on another device. You can’t do this with local accounts. Tell me how a local account on a phone and a local account on a PC are supposed to be connected? To the user saying they were lead to believe you could answer calls and text using this app, well, you are just plain stupid. It doesn’t say anywhere that that functionality exists with this app.
  • Works flawlessly

    By YKAllDay
    I don’t normally write reviews here but the ratings on this app or so low for reasons i don’t understand, it works absolutely flawlessly for me between an iPhone X running iOS 13 and pc running windows 10 home. You have to log in with you windows account on both devices for this to work (specifically the your phone app on the pc and this app on the iPhone). You can even install a pc app called edgedeflector if you want your links to open in a non edge browser. Perfect replacement for Apple’s handoff.
  • Works as advertised

    By aahhsshhaa
    It would be nice if the webpages opened in my set default browser instead of in only MS Edge. If that features happens then 3 stars becomes 4. I am knocking off a star for an error that has happened in every test page I’ve tried so far, after I send the page from my phone to my desktop, my phone shows that there was an error sending my page to the Action Center, but I have not experienced any errors. Just a slight delay.
  • Not sure why the low reviews, maybe new updates fixed problems?

    By Lilbaybay01
    I have an iPad and desktop PC. I usually surf the web at night on my iPad and found myself constantly re-searching for the same webpages or typing in the [sometimes ridiculously long] URLs on my PC browser. I often use Apple’s Airdrop feature to share webpages between Apple devices so I thought surely there’s a way to share webpages between a desktop and tablet. Yup, this is it. Works flawlessly for me.
  • Microsoft please listen

    By SwordInTheLight
    I think this app is amazing. I hate looking at URLs and having to type in each and every character to get exactly the right webpage so this is an incredibly useful tool. BUT it opens up on edge no matter what browser you are using. This is inconvenient since I (and most other people) use chrome and you don’t want a totally different browser to open when you send over a website to your computer. PLEASE add the option to open the webpage on the default browser on your PC. I will not hesitate to change my rating to 5 stars if this feature is implemented. Thank you!
  • Uses Edge regardless of my default browser

    By OkGoDoIt
    Links always open in Microsoft Edge on my computer regardless of what I set my default browser to. It’s extremely annoying that Microsoft doesn’t respect my browser preferences. If I wanted to use Edge, I would send Edge as my browser. In addition to links, you should be able to send other photos and documents as well. The functionality in this app is extremely rudimentary. The best way to get things to myself is still Facebook messenger to myself and opening it on my desktop computer, which is ridiculous.
  • Great Tool! Bypass Edge

    By xDarkProdigy
    Great tool and super easy to set up....the only issue is that Microsoft being Microsoft tries to force you to use MS Edge as this tool will open links in MS Edge regardless of your default browser....super annoying, hence the rating...... However, you can very easily bypass this restriction by installing a tool called Edge Deflector on your Windows 10’s free and takes only a few minutes to set up. All this tool does is any link, regarless of what browser is intended to open in, will open with the browser of your choice....simple :)
  • null_explanation

    By meANdmYopInIOns
    All it does is allows you to stay on the tab you are on just on your pc instead of your phone. I was led to believe I could text and receive calls while using this app and that is what let me down. But other than that it is fairly fine, and I use it occasionally.
