I have Skype running on two (Windows) computers using the same account. I would like to transfer a file from one computer to another computer using Skype file transfer, but I can't start a chat with myself. Is there any way to do it?
I found solution.
It works for me on Linux Skype 126.96.36.199
You can create New Group. Type the name of it. Choose one persone from your contacts. Create the group. After that just remove one persone, who you added.
And you will be alone in chat and still can write messages. Now you will be only one persone, who can see messages in this room.
Yes, you can do that. In both computers, start a chat with someone who is not online. (Preferably use a contact who you know will not be available or use another account of your own.) When you type into the chat in one computer, you will see the text also in the other computer.
If you drag a file to the chat in one computer, you can download it in the other computer. At least I can and I don't have the "download files automatically" option switched on.
It is just as easy using Dropbox (note: this is my referral link which will grant both you and I bonus storage, if you want to sign up without the referral then go to the main Dropbox page). There is no need to go to websites to share files or touch the keyboard since these seem to be your concerns.
Install dropbox on both the computers and login with the same dropbox account to both.
Then the file sharing process will be :
- Drag the file into the folder linked to DropBox on one computer.
- File will automatically appear on the other computers folder that is linked to Dropbox.
With this method:
- You additionally have a backup of the files kept on the cloud. (no need to think about backing up files)
- Also, if a file is overwritten or deleted, you can always get the file back with dropbox's automatically managed version history
