I have two computers , one is a desktop while the other is a laptop . I want to make a network between these two computers so as to exchange files between both . the desktop is connected to our company network using a domain name and password . the usb ports are disabled . An  administrative account is enabled on  the desktop  . I saw some of my colleagues  using this method to exchange files between the desktop a their laptops in and out using a shared folder.Both computers the laptop and desktop uses windows 7 system. Please teach me the procedure to do so. thanks

If you're able to install programs on your laptop and desktop I would just install Dropbox or use SkyDrive.

In your case Dropbox is very useful and will give you the best flexibility. Install the dropbox on both computers and create an account.

Using Dropbox or Skydrive are good apps, but if you want a direct connection between notebook and desktop, you can share a folder on your desktop. This is a easy youtube movie which describes how to share a folder on your desktop (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2fu0LtdVmGw). Then, if the notebook and desktop are in the same network, you can access the shared folder from the notebook via \\<desktopname>\<sharedfoldername>
