I've turned on all the options on both pcs and connected them with the cable.

They both seem to detect the network.

Though, W7 machine only has itself listed under Network. W10 pc has both W7 and W10 but when clicking W7, it has the User folder which I don't have access to, and printer folders.


How do i do this? I just want to send one file.

OK, 20GB. Not email.

For the File and Folder sharing...
Make a new folder on the system where this file lives.
Copy this file into that specific folder
Right click, Properties, and select the Sharing tab
Once you've gone through all the prompts and Shared it (with Everyone), it should be visible from the other system.

In what way does it fail?
What error messages do you see?

Step by step, exactly how did you do this?
