Hi security145 and welcome to BC

If you want to learn you have come to the right place.

Can you give more details about your computer? The OS would be good, like XP or Win200. BTW, thats a trick question. :thumbsup:

This should be somewhat easy. Go to My Computer on the notebook an make sure Sharing in available. Then go to , My Network , right click , go to Properties and look in , Identity for the COMPUTER NAME . Now go to the Home computer and do the same as on the notebook. Also make sure the Work Group name is the same on both computers and the computer names are unquie . On the Home PC go to My Computer select C: drive . On the tool bar select TOOLS\MAP A DRIVE. Enter \\notebook name\drivename\ . Once you have mapped the drive , it will appear as an addional drive on your Home computer and you can drag and drop the files from the notebook to the Home computer . Hope this helps.
