With AirDrop, you can send files to anyone around you wirelessly no Wi-Fi network required. And no complicated setup or special settings. Just click the AirDrop icon in the Finder sidebar, and your Mac automatically discovers other AirDrop users within about 30 feet of you. To share a file, simply drag it to someones name. Once accepted, the fully encrypted file transfers directly to that persons Downloads folder.
Open a new Finder window by clicking its icon in the dock.
Select AirDrop from the list of favorites on the left.
*You may be prompted to enable Wi-Fi if it's turned off.
You'll see your computer at the bottom center of the window.
Once the recipient navigates to AirDrop in their Finder window their device will appear on your screen.
Drag a file on top of the recipient computer and click Send from the popup menu that appears.
A popup will appear on the recipient computer asking you if you want to accept and save the file.
The file will be downloaded into their Downloads folder.
