When we want to transfer the videos, files, or other media, one memory stick is necessary which is also called as the flash drive, like the USB which is the best and portable memory stick, it's small and easy to take, use. We can save the files, folders, pictures, and even entire programs or operating systems to the memory stick. You just need to insert the USB to the Windows PC drive and copy the files from USB to PC or from PC to USB. Even though using the USB is easy to do, for some PC beginner or USB beginner, you can know the USB better in this post: How to use a memory stick on PC?

Using a Memory Stick on a PC

1. Locate your PC's USB port. USB ports are rectangular with a solid piece of plastic on the upper half of the slot and an empty space on the bottom. The port should have a graphic of three branching arrows pointing upward (or downward, depending on your PC) next to it.

Tip: If you're using a desktop, your USB ports are most likely integrated into the CPU, while laptop USB ports are usually on the left or right edges of the casing.

2. Plug your memory stick into the USB port. Make sure the solid piece on the inside of the memory stick's port is on the bottom when you plug it in.

3. Wait for the memory stick's interface to appear. This may take a few minutes if this is your first time installing this memory stick on your PC. If the memory stick doesn't automatically open, double-click "My Computer" and find your memory stick's name under the "Devices and drives" section. Double-click its name to open the memory stick window.

4. Select the files you would like to add to the memory stick. If your files are all in the same place, simply click and drag your cursor across your files until you've highlighted all of them.

5. If you don't want to save your files on your computer, just click-and-drag your selected files over to the memory stick window and drop them there

6. Wait for your files to finish transferring. Depending on the size of your files, adding them to the memory stick can take anywhere from a couple of seconds to hours.

7. Find the memory stick icon in the lower right-hand corner toolbar. This toolbar is in the same area as the clock. The icon resembles the outline of a memory stick with a check mark next to it, and it should produce the phrase "Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media" when you hover over it with your cursor.
