    Download this utility: View any installed/connected USB device on your system

    Right click the .exe in the folder and Run as Admin

    When the USB drivers view panel opens, delete any drivers for your Windows Phone and Android Phone.

    Now when you plug into USB it will load fresh drivers.

    Which windows phone are you using? My icon works flawless when I plug it into my Asus win 10 laptop, no apps required. Are you sure the Usb cable you are using is also a data cable instead of one those charge only cables? Have u tried a different usb cable period? Sorry I cant test a android phone, don't have one present to try...

    That is weird... Sounds lame but do you have a neighbor or someone close enough within reason on 10 you can plug the windows phone in and double check it? I would also try a different data cord. I had a Motorola atrix 2 that got finicky bout cords after bout a year of plugging and unplugging it for charging. Charging worked fine but transferring data and syncing got really aggravating... Wear n tear lol.

    It can happen on any box. USB ports get used over and over. Look at how many drivers are stacked in there. Sometimes you just have to blow some out and start again. It's not 10... It happens all the time on any version.

    Try getting rid of any associated with both phones and letting a fresh install of drivers take place.
