acer aspire laptop bluetooth downloads

  conrail 21:28 05 Mar 2018

I have a new acer aspire laptop running windows 10 home with bluetooth, on previous HP laptop I had a bluetooth dongle that allowed me to multiple bluetooth transfers simultaneously, this acer for each bluetooth transfer I have to select bluetooth then receive a file for each file individually, I have looked under setting but cannot find if multiple transfers is possible, if multiple transfers is possible can someone point me in the right direction please as I take a lot of photos which takes ages transferring each one individually, I could revert to my dongle but that defeats the object of having bluetooth enabled, all help and advice apreciated

Have you tried transferring the files using the USB cable that came with the phone? You'll need to use that cable - many people have found that other cables don't work with your phone.

thanks FE, will try that, when I have multiple photos to transfer I find the easiest way is to remove the sd card and put that in the laptop, just hoping there is a easier way

thanks FE and mrcalif for your advice, I have a one-drive a/c I had forgotten about, I usually use hubic for storage but have resurrected one-drive and am currently downloading all my photos,again thank you both very much, I appreciate your help and advice.

The latest issue 522 of ComputerActive [page 42]has a workshop on How To Transfer Your Photos the fastest way ever.

{50 photos in 10 seconds, approx 70mb}

It uses a utility call ScanTransfer and might be worth a look.
