Filesharing between Linux & Window$ - HOW

I recently took the plunge and replaced mine & Mrs pookys old second-hand Window$ laptops and bought new ones. I had the full intention of wiing Window$ and installing Kubuntu on both but (yes, there had to be a but). It’s kinda grown on us so, we decided to leave Window$ on and make them dual-boot systems. The only problem there is, I have no idea how to make them dual-boot systems.

I know this is ‘Shared Filesystems’ forum but that was just a little history.

I have a Kubuntu 14.04 Desktop and I want to be able to share files between the desktop and the 2 laptops, also between the 2 laptops themselves.

Can anyone give me step-by-step instructions please?

Forgot to mention, the first obstacle I encountered was the UEFI one. I tried switching it off in BIOS but it seems I was unsucessful.
I have got an HP Pavilion Intel Core i5-7200U CPU 2.5Ghz 2.71Ghz 8Gb Ram

So what exactly is the problem ?

In your file manager if you go to “network” (network:///), is the network not browsable ?

Have you actually shared any folders in either Windows or Linux) ?

and where does UEFI come into this ?

I don’t know how to go about setting up sharing between Win & Ubuntu

I typed in ‘network///’ and I got a message ‘You’ll need a new app to open this network’
(If you’ve not figured, I’m using Window$10)

No, that’s why I am asking for help.

and where does UEFI come into this ?

If you read what I wrote correctly, you will see why I mentioned UEFI. It has NOTHING to do with the networking problem, after the first paragraph, I wrote;

I’ve created a new thread for that problem.

I know sod all about KDE, but if you install kdenetwork-filesharing and samba

sudo apt-get install samba kdenetwork-filesharing

then log off/on (or reboot)

When you right-click on a folder in your home folder such as “Public” and select “Properties”, do you have a “Sharing” tab ?

samba kdenetwork-filesharing was already installed
And, yes, there IS a ‘Share’ Tab.

What next? (I’m just being cautious).

As I said, I know sod all about KDE so you’re gonna a have to help me out here with either an explanation of the options available or a screenshot.

'Fraid I don’t even know where to start.

A screenshot of a folders “Properties” > “Share” tab would be a good start.

I decided to Google the problem and found THIS.
I Haven’t attempted to set up sharing from Window$ to Kubuntu yet, so the problem is HALF solved.

I have a screenshot for you, Mark, if it will help.

Not got it working properly yet, it’s downloading the screenshot instead of opening it in a browser window

Screenshot Here

It’s working OK now.

Could you recommend a good online storage that is free and will let me display the image in a forum rather than open another page like I’m currently using. I did use Imageshack but they went to subscription only.
