Elizabeth from Arizona asks,
Will a cable to transfer files from one PC to another work from an Android ipad to a windows 8.1?
I think when you say Android iPad, I assume you mean an Android tablet. (Keep in mind, an iPad is a tablet, but not all tablets are iPads!) But in any case, most tablets do come with cord intended to help transfer files from your tablet to your PC. It usually has a USB connector on one end, then a microUSB connector on the other. It may even be the same cord you use to charge your tablet.
To transfer, simply plug that cord into your tablet and then into your PC. You may have to change a setting on the tablet to allow for it to be a transfer device, as shown in the image below, but once everything is set correctly, you’ll see your tablet listed as a device on the This PC section of Windows 8.1 or under Computer in earlier versions of Windows.
