    Connect old computer to new computer so I can transfer files


    Hello,

    I purchased a new all-in-one desktop computer. There are a couple of files photos, music in my old computer that I would like to access to transfer to the new computer or even just to access to transfer to a flash drive. I don't have a monitor, keyboard or mouse for the old computer so I'm hoping everything can be done from my new computer. I think I need a crossover cable for starters, but then I don't know what to do from there. Both computers are Windows 10. The old computer is a desktop, too.

    Thanks.

    :)

    transfer files between computers on a home network

    I don't know why this is so hard to do but I would like to transfer files between a desktop PC running windows 10 pro and a laptop running windows 10 home. I would like to transfer files in both directions. Both computers are on the same home network and are connected wirelessly.

    Could some one provide either specific step by step instructions on how to do this (I googled and found a countless list of instructions that don't work)

    or a link to a reference.

    Thanks,

    I don't know if this is possible but it would be nice to see the computer sending the desired file in the explorer file manager of the computer receiving the desired file and then under the computer see a list
    of shared files and folders.

    Again, this seems like such a reasonable way of sharing files and folders. Shouldn't there be a simple way to do this?
