Step 5: On the other PC, you will see the following confirmation dialog where you need to click Accept to accept the access request.

NOTE: If you get request denied or similar error, try to establish the connection from the other PC.

Step 6: To transfer files between these computers, simply drag and drop files to the SHAREit window. Alternatively, click the Select files button to select files that you want to transfer and then click Open button to transfer them.

On the screen you will see the progress, transfer speed and file size during transfer.
