  13. FileZillas window is separated vertically in the middle into 2 sections the one on the left is your computer and on the right its your PI.

  14. All you have to do to transfer a file is first navigate to it on the left side of the window and then navigate to where you want to transfer it to on the right side of the window

  15. Finally just drag and drop the file you want transferred from the left to the right or vice versa if you wish to receive from the pi
