How to transfer files from Android phone to Mac

In today’s tutorial, you will learn how to transfer photos and other files from Android to Mac computer.

We know that many big companies create so-called ecosystems, an environment and functionality that works seamlessly together. It is a case with Apple where, all iPhones, iPads and Mac computers work well together. And to a certain extent, it is also the case with Android devices and Windows PCs.

But what happens if we try to connect and send some photos from Android phone to Mac PC? Nothing 🙂

Yesterday it happened to me. I have recently bought a Mac mini and use it for work but because I think iPhones are overpriced, I use an Android phone (Mi MIX 2S to be more specific). So yesterday I wanted to upload a short unboxing video from my phone to my Mac. I connected both devices via USB cable but nothing happened. The computer did not recognize the Android system and the file transfer was not possible.

But after doing some research online I found the way, I managed to connect my Android Phone to Mac and transfer the files. BTW, if you want to transfer one or two small files, it might be easier to connect two devices via Bluetooth. However, transferring large files like videos via Bluetooth is problematic, so you can follow the steps below.

This happened to me. For a few years, I was using both Mac and Windows but as soon as Mac got better, I decided to move to Mac for good.

I’m not a serious gamer, but I like to play from time to time and recently subscribed to Apple Arcade (BTW, you will get 3-month free trial if you buy a new Apple device).

This is when I discovered my strange Game centre name 😧 I think it was generated from my name, but it looked very strange, so I’ve decided to change it. This is how you can do it.

How to delete Skype account

In today’s article, you will find out to quickly delete your Skype account.

Skype in recent years got a few competitors (Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft own Teams) and quite a few people moved to other services. Some of them do not want to leave a digital print behind and want to delete all the data and close Skype account down completely.

But it is not a very straightforward process since Skype merged with Microsoft account and it looks like there is no other way than deleting both accounts together. This is relatively easy but you need to be careful if you use some other Microsoft services.

I do not why but even though I built my PC myself I did not buy a wifi card for it. I thought that I will use a USB network card instead but had a lot of problems with it recently. So finally, one year later, I have decided to upgrade my PC and install a proper, internal wifi card.

This is what I did.
