How to Use a Lexar USB Jump Drive

By Greyson Ferguson

Lexar is a computer hardware manufacturer that creases USB flash drives (or jump drives). These jump drives connect directly into the USB port of a Mac or Windows computer and are used to save content, or export data to a computer. Both systems use the jump drive as a data storage device, although the use process is sightly different for a Mac and PC.

PC

Step 1

Connect the Lexar USB jump drive into one of the USB ports on your computer.

Step 2

Click "Start," "(My) Computer," and double-click the removable device icon. A window appears with all of the files currently stored on the device.

Step 3

Copy files over to the computer by clicking the file in the open window and dragging it onto the computer.

Step 4

Save files to the drive by either click-and-dragging the files from the computer onto the Lexar jump drive, or by opening the document, selecting "File," "Save As," and choose the removable device as the save-to location.

Mac

Step 1

Connect the Lexar USB flash drive to one of the USB ports on the Mac computer. A removable device icon momentarily loads onto the screen.

Step 2

Double-click the icon and a window appears with all of the files currently stored on the Lexar USB jump drive.

Step 3

Copy files over to the computer by clicking the file in the open window and dragging it onto the computer.

Step 4

Save files to the drive by either click-and-dragging the files from the computer onto the Lexar jump drive, or by opening the document, selecting "File," "Save As," and choose the removable device as the save-to location.
