A new update to Windows 10’s Your Phone app lets you save your smartphone-based photos directly to the PC.
Sometimes it really is the little things.
“We added a handy option to the right-click menu for photos in the Your Phone app,” Microsoft’s Analy Otero Diaz tweeted yesterday. “In addition to [the] Copy and Share [options] you can now save a photo directly into your PC!”
As you may know, the Your Phone app provides useful integration functionality between your Windows 10-based PC and (today, mostly Android-based) smartphone. Key among that functionality is the ability to view your 25 most recently-taken smartphone photos.
Until now, saving a photo from your phone to your PC was a bit tedious: You could copy and paste to a photo-editing app like Paint, or view a photo in the Photos app and then access a “Save as” function from the See more menu. But now you can simply right-click a photo thumbnail in Your Phone and choose “Save as” from the context menu that appears.
