How do I transfer a file from my laptop to my desk top? I have a spread sheet that I need to do my taxes for my business and I don't have the product key code for my laptop, but I do for my desk top
 
I would use a flash drive.
-- You can also email the file to yourself and then receive the email on the desktop.
-- If you have a home network you can transfer it with simple file sharing (for XP both computers must be in the same WORKGROUP), using the same WORKGROUP name helps in W7 also.
