What cable to use...

2020-04-06, 14:42 PM

Purchased my new MotoG7 thru Consumer Cellular. Charging the phone works as it should. Finally discovered that I can swipe down to locate changing to File Transfer rather than charging. However is there a different Cable that I should purchase so that I don't have to go thru the swipe down process? Or is this the only way I can connect transferring files to my Windows 10 PC? If I do need to purchase a different cable then what description do I look for that special cable? Or am I missing something by using the standard cable that came with the cell phone? Need some expert advice? Thanks so much.

If the phone is recognized by the PC then no you don't need another cable as the one you are using is a USB to Micro USB cable.


It's best however to use the official Motorola USB Windows Drivers from here for your PC,



HTH :)
