how do i connet my laptop to my desktop? i need to download/transfer the files from the laptop to the desktop because the laptops screen is cracked and you cant see it. thanks.
On your desktop, share a folder where you want to place your files from your laptop. Make sure that you write-enable the folder on your desktop. Then, you can disconnect your monitor from the desktop and connect it to your laptop (VGA port). Once you turn your laptop on, you'll see the output on the external monitor.
Open windows explorer and just type on the address bar the shared folder name after \\ . (example. \\myfolder )
And you can just copy and paste from there.
Hope this helps.
