If you are not using a Xiaomi device, you can search and download Mi Drop from the Play Store.

Step #​2 Open the Mi Drop app, click on the options menu in the top right corner (it looks like three vertical dots), and select “Connect To Computer” option from the dropdown list.

Step #​3 Click the button at the bottom, then chose which storage drive to access that holds the files you want to transfer, normally internal memory of SD card.

Step #​4 This gives you an FTP address that will be used by the PC to find your smartphone. Open a new Windows Explorer (not Internet Explorer) window on your Windows PC and type that FTP address into the bar.
