Hi,

could you please give us some more details? It depends if you want to work on the same document with two computers, or if you just want to transfer it from one to another.

For the second one I'd say just use a USB-Key, an external harddrive, or send it via Email. You can equally share the document online, using for example Google Groups. The online idea is espacially nice if you want to share a document with more people and if you want to upload changes made.

Hope this helps.

On your computer:

Right click on a folder and click properties
Go to tab titled "sharing"
Check the box "share this folder on the network
Type in ANY name for the folder lets say: MUSICPC
IF YOU WANT TO BE ABLE TO EDIT THE FOLDER FROM THE LAPTOP CHECK THE BOX BELOW TITLED "allow network user to change my files"
Click ok and that part is done.

Go to your desktop and click "start" control panel network connections
In network connection go to the tab at the top of the page titled "ADVANCED" and click on "network identification..."

Go get a pen and paper and right down exactly what your computer is called its under "FULL COMPUTER NAME:" and the name of your file that you wanted to share so in this example were using: MUSICPC

MAKE SURE YOU WRITE DOWN THE "FULL COMPUTER NAME" NOT "COMPUTER DESCRIPTION"
now close it all and quickly restart your pc

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Second computer:

This part is quite easy as long as you have followed the steps above you should be right. the only thing you might come across here is easy fixed but ill explain it all.
now go to your laptop and open a internet page.
in the address bar type this EXACLTY

(your computer name that i told you to write down)(folder your sharing)
then press enter
so it should look like this for example
irishmusicpc

if you have used all the right names it will show you the folder you want to see that's on your pc.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Shortcut:

Just go up folder (picture of folder with green arrow pointing up) and it should take a few seconds then show the exact folder your looking to access named "MUSICPC" for example.

Right click on the folder go down and "CREATE SHORTCUT"
you will then see a box saying "cant create short cut here move to the desktop instead click yes then close any open folders.
