    Are you looking for a remote desktop application to share with? Your best bet is just to either connect the two computer directly and drag/drop between them after enabling file sharing or use an external disk.

    I think what you are asking for is to use a single mouse and keyboard, one monitor connected to a Mac and one monitor connected to a PC, and to be able to drag files from the Mac monitor into the PC monitor. I don't know of any software to do this. There are various ways to share the mouse and keyboard (e.g. Synergy) and also ways to copy files between the two (file sharing), but I don't think that is exactly what you want.

    Ethernet cable...or you could use WiFi, but it's quite slow.
