Thanks, Richard. I was trying to connect them directly, and you explained
why it wasn't working. I might have a yellow or gray Internet cable that
would be the cross-connect, but I also can try going over the cloud via
Carbonite or plugging both into the router.

Though it seems something's gone a bit wonky with my Carbonite and I'll
have to call them and get talked through it.

Also can't figure out where the programs are hiding the menus in both
Chrome and Edge. On a Mac, they're always at the top and always start with
File and Edit, in any program. And what do people recommend for a keyboard
macro program?
