Question Connecting Laptop to Desktop

Is there a way I can connect my Laptop to to my Desktop directly to transfer some files, besides a router/network, because I dont have one. TIA

I tried that when I got my laptop - didn't work. Maybe I just wasn't smart or patient enough, but I ended up just putting everything on a LAN and copying it over from there.
