Welcome to the forum.
I can think of three basic ways to accomplish what you wish to do:
- Use the Project Archiver to archive your Project (and check the box to gather the media files), to an external HDD. Probably the easiest way to do it.
- Copy the Project and ALL media files to an external HDD, but be prepared to relink the media files to the Project, as the drive letter (part of the Absolute Path) will have changed.
- Edit loosely, and Share to an AV file, which will be Imported into a New Project on that second computer. Or, edit VERY tightly, and do the same. I like the first, as removing, replacing Transitions, etc., can be much more difficult, unless that "tight edit" is 100% done.

Thanks for the help Bill. It will be a few days before I try working on both computers but I am sure that with your directions I can do it. thanks again. Bruce
I think that one of those methods will do just what you want.
I edit between my laptop and my workstation quite often, so I set up most of my Projects on external HDD's, with that migration in mind. In my case, each external HDD has its drive letter set in the OS of each computer to the same letter, and then Copies of all media files are stored in folders below the Project's root folder. My Scratch Disks are set to Same As Project, hence in sub-folders below that Project's root folder. Everything needed is on that external, and because I set the drive letter to be the same in each OS, I do not have the "Where is file ____ ?" message. This workflow is perfect for me, but remember, it is done before ANY editing has taken place - when things are much easier.
