Whenever we are in need of transferring and sharing files between two computers, the USB-USB cable comes to work. There are so many different USB devices which can connect two computers. They may look different to each other, but the process and mechanism is always the same.
For connecting two PCs with one another, first you have to turn both the PCs on. Then log in the operating system, if it is windows, then you have to use administration privilege. The USB devices which can connect two computers have two ends having two USB ports. They are known as USB bridge cables.
This name is given because they create a bridge between two different computers. The bridge device’s one end should be inserted into the USB slot of one of the computers. At the same way the other side of the bridge USB should be inserted in the other computer. Now you need driver software in order to bridge the computers. Without proper software, you will not be able to connect the computers together because the computers will not let you do so.
The same USB bridge software should be installed in both the computers. Generally, you will be given the software with your USB bridge device when you purchase it.

When you will attempt to install your USB bridge software, then the computer will ask you to select an option. You should install it as link adapter or link adapter.
This will determine which things you can do with the dual connection. If the software is installed as link adapter, you cannot do anything without transferring the files from one PC to another. On the other hand, installing the software as network adapter will give you control over the functionality of the full network. After you have finished installing the software, both the computers will be connected to each other and you can start transferring data from one PC to another.
