Hi. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist.

There are a couple of ways to do this. One way would be to copy your files on one machine

to a USB flash/thumb drive, remove it and plug it in to the computer you want the files to be on

and copy them off the USB drive.

If both computers are on the same network and they can see each other you can also move the files that way.

A third option is to share the files on one computer such that they can be accessed from the other.
