Win10 to ParrotOS file share via Ethernet

i’m looking to transfer a pretty large file over from my old windows device to the parrotOS device via Ethernet chaining.
i have sharing enabled on the windows 10 device,and the ParrotOS device detects the windows network.
so,is it as simple as creating a share list and porting it over,or will i need to download something like Samba?
it seems most articles i’m reading suggest adding samba,but if Parrot is already detecting the network in the file manager,that seems a bit redundant…?

please,correct me if i am wrong,any assistance with this is appreciated…

Briefly describe your issue below:

What version of Parrot are you running? (include version (e.g. 4.6), edition(e.g. Home//KDE/OVA, etc.), and architecture (currently we only support amd64)

What method did you use to install Parrot? (Debian Standard / Debian GTK / parrot-experimental)

Configured to multiboot with other systems? (yes / no)

There are endless ways to do this, but the easiest way is probably just using windows share.

Once the folders are shared you can type into caja:
