Win 10 bluetooth connection to smartphone problem

I have Win 10 laptop and an Galaxy S6 phone with Bluetooth activated on both and paired. I can send files/photos from the laptop to the phone but cannot seemingly send from the phone to the laptop. The phone indicates file sending failed.

Am I missing something here?

Found the answer - On the laptop select Bluetooth and then select "Receive file". You seemingly cannot just send a file directly to laptop.

Simple is it not?
