Done a bit of playing about on this and in the end had to move all the pictures from the titled album to camera within the phone, then connect to PC..then put all pics into a new folder( copied/paste)..Simple...

I have noticed that there is no Samsung Mobile MTP Device on my PC like before..I take it W10 and S8 connect automatically then..

Cheers.

If you can't transfer photos from your Samsung phone to pc in that way, you may need to try a third-party program to help you do that. Usually, the program will scan out all photos on your Samsung phone and list them on program after you connect it to computer. Then you can preview and choose photos you want to transfer to pc.

The most common way to transfer photos between Samsung phone and computer is to copy and paste the files. This method can be completed with one USB cable easily. You just need to establish a connection between your Android phone and computer and once the computer detect your phone, you will be able to move the files from/to computer without any hassle. The details are:

Step 1. Use a USB cable to link your phone to computer. During the connection, you need to enable USB debugging on your phone to make the device be detected.
Step 2. After the detection, you can double click on the icon of This Computer on your PC and then find out your phone.
Step 3. Now you can double click on your device to open it and then click on the folder named DCIM.
Step 4. In this folder, you will see the Camera folder and you should double click on it. Then you see all the images that you have saved on your phone.
Step 5. Now if you want to move the photos from Android phone to computer, you can select the wanted files in the Camera folder and right click to choose Copy option and paste them into your computer. But if you want to sync the images from computer to the mobile phone, you can choose and copy the files from your computer and then paste them to the Camera folder.
