I go back and forth between a laptop and desktop. I always have to run back and forth to get something off the other computer, because I wasn’t very diligent about saving it in a network folder. I like having my working files on the desktop though, so I started using my Dropbox folder as my desktop. It works really well..no more running back and forth
Instructions here if you’re interested.

Good suggestion David. I have that same problem. Most of the time on my desktop, but when I travel or want to work out of the "office" it’s a pain. Especially because my laptop is currently a Macbook Air. Will give this a go. Cheers!

I HATE busy desktops so I really never had the need for synching desktops around certain devices. Instead I have mostly installed the same stuff on my main machine as well as my notebook and connect to my NAS, even from outside 😉 I use DB for my affiliate stuff though

Just bumping this tip because I ran across it today

Boy I’ve been constantly delaying this. I have to get Dropbox running ASAP!
Got Laptop and PC on a desk, if I have to transfer something it all goes via Flash Drive swap in and out. It doesn’t take a ton of time but it’s definitely not practical 😛

That’s what I do. Totally worth the $10, synched across computers AND you can have multiple desktops.
Here’s the lower-right corner of my desktop to show you what it looks like:
