How do I export photos from my Galaxy S7 to my computer. When I connect the phone to the computer, the only options I see are to import to my phone. Please keep it simple as I'm not very computer literate. Thanks.

You may take advantage of an utility software, Samsung Kies, which was developed by Samsung.
Samsung Kies connects your mobile phone to your PC, making it easier for you to synchronize data between devices and find new apps.

Other than this, there are also many apps like xender which allow exporting photos from your mobile device to computer.

Can't you transfer via USB? Connect the phone with a USB cable to the PC. After plugging in, select "USB Mass Storage" when prompted on the phone. The default camera storage folder is '\sd card\dcim\camera'.

Hello, you need to make sure of the phone can be recognized by the computer totally, then you can copy the wanted photos on computer.
To make thing easier, you can use a data transfer or data assistant tool, a super simple tool, just few clicks, so it is easy to use for you.

Do you enable usb debugging in the phone setting? If not, try to open this option in the phone setting, then the phone can be detected by the computer.
Or you can through the Google drive or Google photo to backup the Samsung phone photo on the computer. Just download these tools on your phone, and creat a Google account, then upload the photos to this account.
Turn to computer, sign in the Google account on computer, and download the photos on the computer.

Yup. Without clicking the "Trust this computer" option computer don't detect your phone.
