How do I connect my Android phone to my PC using Es File Explorer?
Question by Ray Ashton /

I have installed Es File Explorer on my Android phone and done a server scan to connect to my PC. It has found my PC but when I try to open the server it is asking for a user name and password.

I’m not sure what it is looking for here? I have no password on my PC. I’ve tried the network password but it didn’t recognise it. Any ideas please?

Thanks, Ray

    If your PC doesn't have a password, just leave the password option blank and try to continue...

    you must have a password set within windows to see your shared stuff. but you can also use the web server feature of ES to view your phone's contents on your PC.

    Go to "Change Advanced Sharing Settings" in "Network and Sharing Center". If you disable password-protected sharing, only folders you share with “Everyone” will be accessible without a password.

    in ES FILE EXPLORER
    Log in as Anonymous if you disabled password-protected sharing earlier

    I suppose you've tried entering your user name and in password box. For security, you should have a password.
