Give the win 8 computer a static IP address, e.g. 192.168.1.80, so it does not change.
to access the win 8 computer from the win 7 computer, open Windows Explorer and in the address bar type \ followed by the target computer's static address, for example,\192.168.1.80 and press enter
If the win 8 computer uses username / password, you will be prompted for them. Enter the username and password to log on to the win 8 computer.
The win 8 computer will be then added to the Win 7 computer's Network list, appearing as an IP address instead of a computer name. You can access its shared drives just as if it were listed by name instead of by number.
