How to Connect My HTC to My Laptop

By James Clark

HTC manufactures a line of cell phones and personal digital assistants (PDAs) for portable communications. The units connect in seconds to a laptop or PC with a USB cable to recharge the internal battery or for data transfer, so you can download information on your computer to your HTC phone. The cable comes with the HTC so no additional equipment is needed.

Step 1

Press and hold the round power button below the phone screen to shut off the HTC.

Step 2

Insert the smaller plug on the data cable into the port on the HTC, either the right or bottom edge, depending on the model.

Step 3

Connect the other end of the data cable to an unused USB port on your laptop.

Step 4

Install the software on the CD that comes with the HTC on your laptop. Load the disc in the laptop's drive tray, close, and install the drivers and programs by clicking the command buttons as each appears on the laptop screen. Restart the computer after installing your phone software.
