    Win 8 problems

    Hi Guy's. Just been given a Lenovo G580 Laptop, which I think is very nice. Sadly I cannot get it online, nor do I really want to if I am honest. But I would dearly love to put a nice little opiece of writer software and maybe a couple of games on it. But how do I do this? I do have a PC which runs Win XP Pro. I am on the Internet with this set up. I have a cable with two identical USB connectors, one at each end. Would this enable me to download some Win 8 software to my Lenovo using the PC ? I would appreciate any help that the experts can give me. Many thanks. Walt.

    Win 8.1 Enterprise

    Welcome to Eight Forums,

    If the programs were downloaded to your PC and you didn't use a CD to install the program why don't you just use a USB flash drive or any USB external hard drive and transfer the files over to your Lenovo laptop?
