How to get PC to recognize and download videos

Ok I scanned the posts and found info that helped me connect my phone to my PC. However it downloaded my videos as pictures. The videos are just what you see when you are viewing the the entire album instead of being able to be clicked on and viewed. What can I do, if anything, to get these videos onto the computer? I normally wouldn't even bother but these are videos of my newborn son and I want them to be on the computer in case something happens to my phone. HELP PLEASE!!!!
