I would like to do is send a picture from my phone to the computer.

If that is all you are trying to do then Dropbox will do that with no effort once you set it up. I have a Samsung Galaxy and a Windows 10 desktop.

I installed the Dropbox app on the phone and set it up to automatically upload any photos that I took. Then I logged the desktop into my dropbox account and told it to download pictures that show up there. The pictures magically show up in the dropbox folder on my desktop. On the desktop, I periodically move the pictures out of the dropbox folder in put them into my photo folders. When I do that they are automatically deleted from the online dropbox, but not from the phone. That keeps me from running out of space in my dropbox.

You can also put other things in my dropbox in the cloud by putting them in the dropbox folder on the desktop and they are automatically uploaded.

The phone is also set up to only upload items to dropbox when the phone is on WiFi. It is quicker and won't use tons of data that way.

It has worked seamlessly and behind the scene for years.
