How to transfer files from Windows to BlueStacks

To be able to transfer files from your PC to the Android emulator, you have two options. First, from the BlueStacks Home screen, click on the System Apps folder:

Then, click on Android Settings:

The system settings will open, exactly as if you were doing it from a phone. We scroll down until we find the Import Windows Files section, and click on it:

Next, an explorer window will open where we will have to look for the files that we want to add to the Android emulator. When we have found them, we will click on Open. Once the process is complete, the imported files will appear in the BlueStacks Media Manager:

The second method is more straightforward. If you click on System Apps again, you will see that there is an option already marked as Media Manager:

If you click on it, not only will you return to the last point of the previous section, but you will see the option to import files from Windows already included in the Media Manager:

If you click on it, a Windows Explorer window will appear again, where you will have to follow the same methodology that we have described above. Again, when you have added the relevant files, they will reappear in the Media Manager.

It is worth remembering that BlueStacks is one of the most widely used Android emulators for personal computers worldwide, and also one of the most complete. It is also interesting to remember that features like this make it very easy to maintain the integration of BlueStacks with Windows and that it is much easier to work with different file types across both platforms.
