Bluetooth & Cell Phone

As I understand it, I should be able to link my new Win8 touch screen notebook (Asus X202e) with my Android cel phone (Moto Droid X2) so that I can quickly and easily exchange photos and files - I think I should be able to see the entire contents of one device on the other?

Anyway, I've successfully set up my Bluetooth, 'found' my cel phone, paired it to my PC and made the connection. I can 'see' the phone on the computer (Win8 says it's working correctly) but I can't see anything on the phone on my PC nor the other way round

I watched a simple 'how to' on Youtube and it showed a desktop icon for the phone and when they clicked on that it showed every folder on the phone and you could search through the phone on your desktop and request any file you liked to be transferred. I don't have that icon, nor can I figure out how to create it. I found the shared folders, but they are empty, probably because I can't figure out how to transfer anything from PC to phone or the other way

TIA for any tips - Obviously, I'm overlooking something simple, as usual!

I have a different Android phone than your's .
With that said when your phone is paired with the computer you can transfer file's between each other but to look threw all the folders and stuff on the phone with your computer you will need some software on the phone , with that said I use a program called Webkey for Android it works with the browser on your computer but I think you have to have your phone rooted to use it, there are other app's on the Google play store that do the same thing

Oh to transfer file's with no app . On your computer right click on a file that you want on the phone and pick "send to" and one of the options will be "send to bluetooth" (or something looking similar to that) and on your phone long press on the file you want send to the computer and something similar will come up . It's been a while since I have had to do that I can't think of the name right now. As long as you are paired this should work
