After downloading and installing, sign in to the Google account that you use for Google Photos. You can also download it for iOS and Android if you want to view your photos and videos on mobile devices.
You will see that a menu appears where you can choose to backup photos only, videos only, or all files.
You can now select all of the folders that you want a backup of. In the “Photo and Video Upload Size” section, you can select the size at which the photos should be uploaded.
So now you have all of your Google Photos photos and videos on your computer. Please note that an image that you delete from Google Photos is not automatically deleted from your computer.

If you don’t want to install an app on your computer, you can also use your web browser to go to the following address: photos.google.com.
There you will see the “Upload” button in the upper right corner. All you have to do is press it and a menu will open to search for the photos you have on your computer that you want to upload.
