USB drives are a popular and efficient way to store data, video, music and image files. They can be quickly cleared of data and store more information than CD's. If you want to transfer files from your computer to a USB drive, you can do so very easily with a simple drag and drop method.

Step 1

Insert your USB drive into an open USB port on your computer.

Step 2

Click the "Start" button on the lower left side of your computer's desktop and select "My Computer."

Step 3

Double-click on "Removable Drive(E:)."

Step 4

Locate the files on your computer that you want to transfer and open the window containing them.

Step 5

Drag and drop the file or files into the open "Removable Drive (E:)" window.

Step 6

Safely remove the USB drive by clicking the USB icon in the lower right tray and selecting "Safely Remove USB Device."

Carefully pull out the USB drive.
