To send files with Send To


Establish an infrared link by aligning your computers so that the infrared transceivers are within one meter of each other and the transceivers are pointing at each other. For more information, see Related Topics.


On the desktop, in Windows Explorer or in My Computer, select the files you want to send.


Right-click the selected files, point to Send To, and then click Nearby Computer.


If Nearby Computer does not appear on the Send to menu (as described in step three of this procedure), make sure that your infrared devices are correctly aligned and that an infrared link is established. The Nearby Computer menu command only appears when an infrared link is active.
