How to Download Pictures from the HTC Status


Downloading your pictures from the HTC Status to a computer creates a backup of the pictures so that you don’t lose them if the phone is lost or damaged. Placing the pictures on the computer also provides you with additional options to share the photographs with your family and friends. When connected to your computer, the Status is recognized as a removable disk, allowing you to copy and paste files just as you can with the computer’s hard disk.


  • Connect the micro USB end of the USB cable into the HTC Status and then plug the standard USB end of the cable into a USB port on your computer. The “Choose a Connection Type” screen appears on the phone.
  • Tap “Disk Drive” and then “Done.” The computer recognizes the HTC Status as a removable disk drive.
  • Move the cursor to the upper right corner of the screen and click “Search.” Type “File Explorer” and then click it in the search results. If you’re in Desktop view, you can click the folder icon in the Windows taskbar to view File Explorer.
