    I would like to set up a direct connection between my Samsung Galaxy S2 and my windows computer. They're both connected to my WLAN. How do I do this? I know there are all kinds of apps in the store that allow you to move files and set synchronizations. But I would like to do it manually. Help would be appreciated.

    Explain the difference between "using an app" and "doing it manually". Even if you used the command line on each, you're still using an app or program (the command line is a program on a computer and an app in a phone [the two words mean the same thing - executable code[).

    You can't physically pick up an app from the phone and shove it into a hole in the computer, you have to run an app that connects to a server program on the computer, or a program on the computer that connects to a server app on the phone. That's just how computers work.

    Even using net send on a Windows computer (net send <computer to send to> <file to send>) is using programs - net is a program.

    By doing it manually I mean I want to connect my android phone and windows computer or send files between them using WIFI only and what ever native applications there are have. Windows has the file sharing feature, does Android not have something similar natively?
