My home network has 2 Windows7 machines and 1 IPad Air (wifes main machine).  Is there any way to actually 'see' the IPad from a Windows machine? 

 

If I look at the router, I can see IP addresses assigned to all devices, but if I look at the network map on my Win7 machine the IPad is totally invisible.  Sure would be nice to be able to share photos, etc between Win and IPad across the network,.

you can use Itunes for Windows to do this. Install iTunes and connect the iPad device.

Thanks for the reply.  But no, I will not install Itunes on my Windows machine.  Did that once and darn near took a full reformat to get it all off.  There are still some related files scattered around my hard drive.   

 

Any settings on the IPad or Win7 machine that I might have misconfigured?  Any simple Windows util or iOS app? 

 

How do they use these things in a corporate environment if their file system can not be seen on the network?

If you use ICloud Drive you can simply upload the files to your ICloud account and download it from Windows PC. Sign in to your ICloud Account from Windows and choose ICloud drive. Documents are stored there can download to your windows PC.

 

Here some Tools you can try it:

 

Air Transfer

 

iBrowse

 

File Browser

 

You can install ICloud Drive to your Windows PC (no iTunes) to have direct Access in Windows. See here: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201391
