Transferring music to an iPhone/iPad using iTunes on a PC

Hi guys. So, I did this before, where I put music from my computer (A surface 4 laptop) on to my Iphone, using Itunes. However, I seemed to have forgotten how to do this. I use the JAWS screenreader. If you could help, that would be great! Thank you,
Marissa

I know how to do this. I do it all the time. Do you have the music in your iTunes library?

It's in my downloads folder. I'm not sure how to get it in to my music library, then on my iphone/ipad.

I'm free after 1 PM pacific time. It's up to you. I'll write out the steps if you want, is your iTunes library empty?

They are there since I put those on my phone. They're on the computer, in the Itunes library. The ones I want in my library, then my phone, are in my downloads folder on my laptop.

When you say, select the files, can you select them from anywhere on the pc? And how do you add you files from the library to your iphone? Or is that what you just showed?

It will pop up with an add to library dialog. So similar to an open dialog box.
