Need help to network a desktop and a laptop.

I recently got Windows 8.1 on my desktop, and I'm trying to get it to network with my Windows 7 laptop so that I can share files between them. But they refuse to identify each other.

Would someone kindly tell me the steps to setup a LAN connection between them? I'm using a LAN cable, the regular one.
