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.
