5 thoughts on “Share files on mobile phones using SHAREit WebShare”

  1. Is it possible to use this function as pc2pc file sharing? In this case sender will be a laptop computer. I know for a fact that Mobile phone to PC is possible. but how do I share files pc2pc using webshare?

    1. i am afraid the webshare is only available with the mobile version. For PC2PC transfer, its desktop version needs to be installed on both computers, and the computers need to be connected via WiFi, hotspot or LAN. after that click the “Connect to PC” on the top right corner menu and follow onscreen tips to share files between PCs.

    1. generally speaking it should be your Downloads folder on PC unless you have changed the downloads folder from your web browser settings. In many cases, it should be C:\Users\yourusername\Downloads\.
