You need to create a CIFS / Samba share for the Windows client. The tutorial should get you started on the following steps:

1. Install samba packages
apt-get install samba System-config-samba

Open in new window

2. Add samba users and configure with System-config-samba or edit smb.conf directly.
smbpasswd -a 

Open in new window

Under menu 'Places' choose 'Connect to Server', in the 'Connect to Server' screen fill in all details, check remember password.

The connection should open now. On the left side of the window that opened, right-click the connection (it has an eject icon) and choose 'Add Bookmark'.

You now have a bookmark to your server under menu 'Places', select that bookmark to connect and open the shared folder.

You should create a new launcher for this, there is no 'drag-and-drop' available in Mint (Gnome desktop).

How to do that is nicely written up here at the Mint community site:
