How do I transfer files from my Windows XP desktop to my Windows 8 laptop?

by on June 3, 2013

Q: I have a wifi home network up and running, and now I need to know exactly what to do to get files transferred to and from Windows XP desktop and Windows 8 laptop. It would also be nice to send chat messages, etc. Which button do I push first?

    Microsoft has an excellent tutorial that will walk you through setting up file sharing between your computers.

    I suggest starting with that: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/sharing-files-printers-help#sharing-files-and-printers=windows-7&v1h=win8tab1&v2h=win7tab1&v3h=winvistatab1&v4h=winxptab1
