    You need to setup a shared network to setup "shared folders" between computers, that either wireless or hardwired.

    Start/control panel/network setup wizard/ and go from there.

    once done you need to setup the other computer the same way.

    I will give pics, IF you respond back for further assistance.

    let me/us know how it goes and I/us will walk you through the whole process to make sure you are able to share files between your PC's.

    see you then :)
