    Make sure both PCs are on. Then just open up your library (folder icon) Then on the left at the bottom select Network. Then choose the PC on the network you want to transfer the file from. Enter in the user name and password of the PC and navigate to the files your looking for. Copy and paste to your pc.

    Are you the admin on the computer that has the file your trying to transfer?
  4. You could set up simple file sharing.
