    Hello,

    I'm a really new to Macs and so far, am really enjoying it. We just purchased a MacBook and a Mini. Is is possible for us to enable Bluetooth so I can send her documents and vice versa using Bluetooth?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, but why not just use AirPort? Are you already using a wireless network? If so, you should just need to go to  -> System Preferences -> Sharing and check the File Sharing box on each computer. That done, each will appear in the Finder sidebar on the other machine.

    Oh. I did what you suggested, and it does show her computer on mine and mine on hers, however it keeps on saying 'connecting'. I doesn't do anything else. Should I just be able to "drag and drop" a file onto her name in Finder?

    Are there instructions somewhere so I don't have to a)bother people, b)ask stupid questions?
