Syncying my Google Drive pictures with my computer

Hi, I created an account with Google so that I could take pictures with my Samsung 6 and Galaxy tablet and have everything sync with my computer.  I'm not having much luck.

Apologies - you were looking for mobile-to-PC. Use Google Drive. 

For Android:

1. Open the Google Photos app on your mobile device .
2. At the top left, touch the menu icon .
3. Select Settings > Back up & sync.
4. At the top, switch it on or off.

Things to keep in mind about this setting:

Changing backup settings will affect all apps that use Back up & sync, such as Google Drive. If you have Back up & sync on, deleting the Google Photos app from your device will not turn it off. To turn off Back up & sync, follow the instructions above.

I did what you said and I see a message at the bottom saying "Backing up 1 of 74" but it's been that way for five minutes and I don't see any change.  It still says Backing up 1 of 74.  Does it take that long?  Shouldn't this change to indicate how many are left to back up?  I opened my Galaxy tablet and there are no new pictures for today.  In other words, I don't think the app is working correctly.

Using wifi in your Samsung 6?

Besides, try the following.

1. Go to Application configuration for Google Play Services, selected "Manage Storage" then selected "Clear all Data."

2. Re-installed Google Photos, and reconfigured
