Transferring data

I want to transfer data from my desk top to my laptop. What kind of cable do I use?

Are the two machines on a network either wired or wireless? If so you don't need another cable, just make sure that file sharing is enabled open up two windows - one for each machine - and drag them across.

Many thanks. Why on earth didn't I think of something as obvious as that.

Well it only works if you are on a network, otherwise I would have recommended a USB pen drive and simply carry the thing between the two machines.
