Hi :) 
Ok so recently my mum got a laptop for xmas and I want to be able to transfer files from my PC onto her laptop (which I'm on now), however I'm not too sure how to do it. In general I'm quite good with computers but if you know how, please post beginner-friendly instructions if you know what I mean. (So they're easy to understand)
Thank you.

If both have a network connection via a router you can just setup a network connection between them.

If not, check that both have a network port and buy an ethernet cable (crossover version) to link them and use Windows Networking Wizard.

Remember to turn off firewalls on both and enable file sharing on relevant folders.
