How to Transfer Files from iPhone to PC

“Hi, I have been using my iPhone 6 16GB version for a long time. Recently, when I take photo it pops up a notice that my iPhone runs out of storage. I need to delete files on my iPhone to make space for new data. I would like to transfer files from iPhone to PC before deleting them. So I can check the backup files when I need them. Is there any way to copy files from iPhone to computer?”
