How to transfer a file

To send a file with Google Talk:

  1. From an active chat window, click the Send Files button.
  2. Browse to the file or files you'd like to send (use CTRL-Shift to select more than one file at a time).
  3. Click OK. Google Talk will insert your file into the chat session.
At this point, you'll have the option to Cancel the transfer. Doing so will withdraw the offer. Otherwise, your contact can click Accept to download the file to their hard drive, or Decline to reject the transfer.

You can also simply drag and drop files and folders into an open chat window to initiate a transfer.
