I use a piece of software called FileZilla to transfer any files to and from Pi and my Windows 10 computer. Is there any way to eliminate the use of this software? Like a Pi terminal command? Or Python code?

  • You can use all kind of software which is using sftp communication protocol. So you can write your own python script to transfer data.

You could set up samba on the Pi and share a folder. Make sure you give that folder read and write permissions.

install samba: sudo apt-get install samba samba-common-bin
