Hello. When you transfer your downloaded files from Android to PC(windows 7 or 10), for example PDFs, how could the original date of downloading be kept, and arrange these files in PC according that date? Thanks

When you move a file you modify it - that's the Date Modified you see in a PC. If you transfer the file, then touch it (, using the date you see in the phone, touch will change the Date Modified to whatever date you give it. (You can't keep the old modified date when you modify a file - otherwise it wouldn't be the modified date. It can't even be the created date - when you copy it to the PC, you're creating a new file on the PC. And there's no "Date of File This File Came From" field in a file's directory information.)
