OK, so i just recently got a laptop with windows 7 on it. My desktop has windows xp and i'm trying to make it so i can copy files to and from my laptop to my desktop and vice-versa without having to set it up every time and so that i can just turn on the desktop and it will be able to share files with my laptop right away.
So far, i have gotten my desktop to be able to access my laptop through "My Network Places" in the "The Internet" section. But on my laptop, it shows my desktop (and what my desktop used to be named for some reason) in the network on the side of the explorer window. when i double click on one, it says that windows cannot access *computer name* and when i press to diagnose the problem, it says to make sure that the device or resource (*computer name*) allows incoming connections for file and printer sharing. In someone could help me, that'd be great. Thanks.
