Hello, I have two laptops - one runs on Windows 10 and the other runs on Linux. As of right now, both of them are hooked up through my router through the ethernet cables. I need to transfer several files from the Windows machine to the Linux one. What's the easiest way to do that?

    Easiest would be drag-n-drop. Is that not set up?

    You can try WinSCP, a small tool that helps to copy files from Windows to Linux. Or simply share a folder on Linux OS and then copy files from Windows OS.

    I agree with Raven, if they are on the same network and can be seen by the other device the drag and drop method is easiest.

    Moreover, sharing folders is an easy choice to transfer files from Windows to Linux. You end up mounting a Windows directory on Linux system/Linux directory on Windows, so that both systems can use the same set of files rather than copying the files from one system to the other. For this purpose, it is better to use Samba, which emulates Windows protocols & runs on the Linux system.

    Even if not on a shared network, an intermediate USB drive would be easy. Drag/drop to the drive, disconnect from one system and connect to the other, and drag/drop to whatever folder is desired.
