    Anybody use Flow with their Windows 10 laptop? Is it good for opening laptop using phone fingerprint sensor? Any better transfering files than Bluetooth which takes forever with photos. Any other cool uses you have tried?

    I don’t know anything about Samsung Flow.

    Alas, I will have to look into it. In particular, if I can also have it unlock my Windows 10 (as well as lock, if I am out of range of my laptop)...

    After watching this video I think I'm going to give it a try. The ability to sync clipboard content seems very useful. Thanks for posting this, made me do a little research.

    Since my laptop lacks fp sensor all I really care about is the ability to transfer files and open laptop using phone fp sensor.

    Thanks! Note 9 does so many things I will never learn half of them.

    I'm still trying to get Samsung flow to work with my windows 10 PC period. I can't transfer files with Bluetooth or wifi from my computer to my phone or vice versa. I'll check out the video posted later. Maybe Im just doing it wrong.

    Been using Flow for a while. No it doesn't have support for using the fingerprint on the phone. At least not that I can find. It does send a prompt for you to unlock the Windows machine. Just press okay. The catch is that Windows won't run Flow at startup, so this only works if you had Flow opened prior, like after a hibernate.
    ivanwi11iams and recDNA like this.

    Ah thanks
    That makes it useless for my purposes. What functions do you find useful?

    Bluetooth works even without flow but it is too slow. I didn't know you could transfer files by wifi but of course that's no use at work.

    Yeah the problem is Flow is a UWP app. So I can't find a way yet to have it forced turn on at startup since it doesn't showup in the startup menu for me.

    It's probably directed at those people who never actually turn off their computers.

    Even in startup I bet it might not start until password is entered. A lot of my software is in startup so it takes a long time AFTER i log in before I can use the laptop.
