Transferring files from a flash drive to a Windows 11 desktop does not require any additional software in most cases.
Insert the flash drive into an available USB port on your Windows 11 desktop.
Windows should automatically detect the flash drive and assign it a drive letter. You can verify this by opening File Explorer (press Win + E) and checking the "This PC" or "My Computer" section. The flash drive should be listed as a removable storage device.
Double-click on the flash drive icon to open it and view its contents.
Navigate to the location on your Windows 11 desktop where you want to transfer the files. This could be a specific folder or the desktop itself.
Select the files you want to transfer from the flash drive by clicking and dragging the mouse cursor over them or by holding the Ctrl key and clicking on individual files.
Once the files are selected, right-click on one of the selected files and choose "Copy" from the context menu. Alternatively, you can use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + C to copy the files.
Go to the destination folder on your Windows 11 desktop, right-click inside the folder, and choose "Paste" from the context menu. Alternatively, you can use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + V to paste the files.
Windows will start copying the files from the flash drive to the desktop folder. The time taken depends on the size and number of files being transferred.
Once the file transfer is complete, you can safely eject the flash drive by right-clicking on its icon in File Explorer and selecting "Eject" or "Safely Remove."
That's it! Your files should now be transferred from the flash drive to your Windows 11 desktop. If you encounter any specific error messages or issues during the process, please provide more details so that I can assist you further.
