To download all photos from iCloud to a Windows PC, you can use the iCloud for Windows app provided by Apple. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to do this:

Step 1. Install iCloud for Windows on your Windows PC and then sign in with your Apple ID and password.

Step 2. In the iCloud for Windows app, select the option to enable iCloud Photos. Choose whether you want to download and keep a local copy of your iCloud Photos Library on your PC.

Step 3. Open File Explorer on your PC. Under the Quick Access menu, you should see an iCloud Photos shortcut. Click on it to access your iCloud Photos.

Step 4. In the iCloud Photos folder, all your photos and videos are stored here. Simply select all the files or folders you want to download, right-click, and choose the "Download" option.

Step 5. Once the download is complete, you will find your iCloud Photos stored in the designated location on your PC.

Note that depending on the number and size of your photos, the download process may take some time. Search for a faster way to download photos from iCloud to computer?
