Having trouble syncing your #Apple products with your #Windows 10 computer? Here's a quick help guide

Wired vs. wireless sync
How to install iTunes 12 on Windows 10
You can sync your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to Windows 10 by plugging in the USB to Lightning (or 30-pin Dock) cable. You can also set up Wi-Fi sync, so data will transfer whenever you're connected to the same network.
Wired sync is faster and you can watch it happen but Wi-Fi sync is much more convenient and you don't even have to remember to start it.

Have you disabled UAC on your #Windows 10 computer, because of the annoying pop ups. Well maybe you should think twice about this!

These security windows can get annoying, but it is not a good idea to turn them completely off.
"If you frequently run programs in administrator mode, dealing with the User Account Control (UAC) - the pop-up window that asks you if you're sure you want to let this program make changes to your computer - can get annoying. While you can set up specific programs to always run in administrator mode(thereby bypassing this pop-up), there's no easy, secure way to set up your computer so that all programs run in administrator mode.
Well, there is one way, but it's not secure. You can disable the User Account Control pop-ups altogether, but this is not recommended - not even for veteran PC tinkerers. The reason this is not recommended is because the UAC actually does serve an important purpose: It alerts you to any programs that might be trying to change your computer, including viruses and malware links you may have accidentally clicked on. If you disable the UAC completely and you're using an administrator account, any program that runs on your computer, including viruses and malware, will automatically have access to make changes to your PC."
