    I need to move files from my pc to my new mac. I have an ethernet cable and a router, what do I do?/ God I suck at computers.

    Plug both into the router. Go into System Preferences > Sharing and click on Personal File Sharing & Windows Sharing. If you don't have file sharing turned on for your PC do that and right-click the drive you want to share & set that up.

    Click on the Network icon in the sidebar of a window, find your computer on the network & go.
