I am retired & use my several years old Samsung flip phone irregularly & for emergencies.

Little need for a Smart phone.

It happens to be also convenient to take quick pics, but since I updated to Win 10 (Anniversary Edn) I have not been able to use the cumbersome SW that came with the phone - "Samsing PC Studio 3" to shift the pics onto my PC for editing.

 

I have tried connecting by USB cable but that only results AFAIK in the phone charging.

It would appear I need working SW or an alternative method.

I searched & discovered that I might be able to transfer by email or Bluetooth.

My PC has wireless router connection capability though I have had no need to use it, my grandson does when he comes!

As for email, I don't know if the phone can send email wirelessly & anyway I can't seem to fathom how to enter an email address which involves a single underscore.

 

Can anyone help?

As it happens eventually I managed to find a link (with great difficulty) whereby I could contact a real help person at Samsung.
The updated SW which I already had downloaded was not stand alone & not easy to use to set up.
However after allowing the help desk too take over my PC the issues were resolved.
Samsung should be ashamed that their SW is nigh unusable & that their help desk is so difficult to contact.
However to be fair the problem is now resolved.
I would have preferred a more elegant solution maybe similar to Neon Thomas's idea.
