How do I share a directory to linux and windows PCs on a local network in Mint 18.3 Sylvia Xfce? [SOLVED]

Hello! I am tired of moving my external HD around, so I need a way of transferring files across my three systems (Windows 10, Mint 18.3 Xfce [beta], and Mint 18.3 Cinnamon).

Hey Gary! I don't know enough about partitions but in the meantime (while we wait for someone to answer your question), I am curious what you do with Win XP?

Will the Mint 17.3 wifi card solution [Qualcomm Atheros QCA6164] work on LMDE2?

I was told to install backports last year as the kernel back then didn't support my wifi card. On Mint 18 the card works out of the box and I have internet. Does JeremyB's backports solution for Mint 17.3 apply on LMDE2? His answer here: https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=223034&a...

Re: Why two desktop environments?

I prefer Xfce myself, and I find that after some customization with built-in options, it readily adapts to look rich and modern. Mint is the best because it offers something for everybody. But I was thinking also about the problem Xfce solves for Mate, in the way that it efficiently fills a demand f...

Are Linux distributions really so different from one another?

I have taken a strong interest in Mint over the past year, so I have taken to watching Joe Collins and Chris Were on youtube, both of whom are well versed in Linux and seem to like talking about Mint. And I watch others, too. But there's something that bothers me about these youtubers who compare an...

Re: What you'll do when Firefox drops support for XUL addons?

I am on current Firefox. I'm actually using more addons now that I see they're sticking around. Namely, I'm back on Disconnect and Decentraleyes. It seems way faster than it used to be, too. What's the problem again?

Eve Online

I've read that Eve Online is the best working application in Wine. Does anyone know whether that applies to the Wine available in the Software Manager, or do I need the latest Wine version available from their website?

weak microphone pickup

My friend says my microphone is barely picking me up, whether it's over Skype or Wire.

Is there a way I can check to see what the matter is? All my levels are up.

Re: Sonya 18.2 fresh install or Live DVD won't hibernate

Do you want to be able to hibernate or is suspending enough? Pjotr published a great guide about removing hibernation because it can cause problems (maybe problems like the one you are having).
