I struggle with knowing how to best manage and organize my data, pictures, files, apps, etc. On my Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G. Is there a way for me to connect this device to my desktop so that I can view all of its contents as I would the contents of my desktop computer so that I could effectively manage these resources? If there is a way to do this, I would be very grateful to learn how this could be done.

DeX works great and can be connected either to a monitor or right to your Win 10 desktop.  You can also just connect the USB cable to your phone and access the DCIM/Camera folder directly from File Explorer if you're more comfortable with that.
