First, you'll have to connect them. If they are connected to the same router, you can skip this step, else create ad Ad-Hoc network and connect them together. You'll have to set the IP for both computers.

After that, you'll have to enable file-sharing. Look at samba to enable share from ubuntu to windows. To share from windows to ubuntu, you'll just have to share the folder with the standard file-sharing settings of windows. Then just type in nautilus (file explorer, to type press CTRL+L) smb://HostIP/ (Replace HostIP according to the IP of the remote computer).
