How can I connect my laptop with my desktop?

HP Recommended
Envy TE01Desktop & Envy X360 Laptop
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Can I hook up my laptop directly to my desktop to share files and possible network together? My laptop does not have an ethernet port. Can I use another type of cable to network such as via USB?

Thank you.

Please do NOT post its Serial number (s/n).

 

Yes, you can use USB adapter. I actually using the following adapter

Thank you for your suggestion. I will try the USB to Ethernet adapter to connect my HP ENVY x360 Convertible 13-ag0xxx to my HP Envy TE01 -0xxx Desktop.
