Why not just share your folders?

I just mark the folders I want to be shared and access them via the network. You just right-click a folder and click "Share with".

Good luck.

How about in this situation, where im playing a video game on the main pc but then I decide to play on the pc in the living room, I would need to transfer the save files which is normally stored in my documents, is there a method for both pcs to have like the same documents? I dont know if im making sense or not.
