The easiest way to transfer pictures from your desktop computer to a laptop is to buy a USB "Thumb Drive". A large size costs between $10 to $20 USD. Or for about $120 USD, you can buy an External Desktop Drive. Copy or Move the pictures to the Thumb Drive or External Drive. Close the drive properly (click on the drive icon in the tool tray). Next, insert the USB connection into the laptop. Copy or Move the images over to the laptop drive, usually under My Documents.
