    Use OneDrive?
    Or Access from your network(router) and drag & drop.

    OK thanks, I will look into using OneDrive.
    To access from your network(router) and drag & drop, this would need both computers on all the time I think.

    You can also sync both PCs if you have multiple accounts. A great Tutorial from @Kari: OneDrive - Sync Multiple Accounts in Windows - Windows 10 Forums

    I would not keep the files synced between both. The profiles can end up out of sync.

    I would store files on a NAS and use Local accounts, not Live account.

    As long as you are not using both computers at the same time, a simple solution would be a USB stick or disk containing all data. My wife and me do it that way because our computers are spread over 3 locations thousands of miles apart. We carry our own 'cloud'. I don't trust this web-cloud.
