[Hidden-tech] Got my PC today. How do I get it exchanging files with the Mac?

The 'proper' way is to setup a share on the Mac and share it with the 
windows box
Can't really just connect the two with a network cable - you need to 
connect both to a common router or network hub.
To get the IP on windows - do right click on network connection, pick 
status and the details

HOWEVER, a whole lot easier way is to use a dropbox (or google drive) 
and let that system do the work
It would work well unless you don't have a good cable (or better) 

OR you could just use a thumb drive -- they are pretty big now a days -- 
dumb is good

Good luck - Rich
