Both the old and new PC are connected to our home wifi router wirelessly now. I just need to configure both, so they can see each other in my 2 pane file manager, and I can transfer data files to the new PC, then install new Windows 10 programs on the new PC for them. Please?

( I tried hooking an ethernet cable between them but couldn't figure out how to get that to do it. )

Decades ago, I decided that I did not want to fool around with learning Networking. All my friends and computer customers use just one, or maybe two computers, NOT networked.

So when I want to share files between any of my numerous PC's. I use an age old technique called the "Sneaker Net".
That's where I copy the files I want to share with another PC, to a removable media, such as a Flash Drive, then use my sneakers to walk the FD over to the other PC where I copy the files off onto the other PC.
And, I still have those files on the FD, so I can share them with even more PC's.

I really like doing things on the KISS method. (Keep It Simple Stupid). lol
