    cloud has slowed my lap top to the point I can not use it and I am on my own wifi at home but it is extremely slow and likely what is slowing computer but I still dont know this 'secret' to sharing the file via IP. I will leave this open for anyone who might know but that is the only issue I wish to leave open... thanks Ztruker & broe23 for getting me this far.

    1st you have to share the folder or folders on the target computer.

    File Sharing - "Share with" & "Stop Sharing" in Windows 8

    Then you right click on the Desktop an select New then Shortcut.
    Enter \\nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn\share and click Next.
    Give it any name you want

    nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn is the IP address of the target computer.
    share is the name of the share you setup there.

    Double click on the shortcut on the Desktop and Windows Explorer will open to the folder defined by the share.

Hi, I had to buy a new laptop that I could take with me to work, and of course it runs Win8 (which I absolutely hate, incidentally). I decided it would be nice if I could share files with my primary computer when I'm at home, which is a desktop running dual-boot Win7 and Ubuntu. I initially...
share in Network & Sharing
Hello I have tried to share many times with my desktop and the response is that share cannot be done form the desktop. Does that mean a touch screen only can share or am I not performing this properly.
