Install a file sharing server such as SAMBA. Then you can make a shared folder between your windows and Ubuntu hosts. You can download samba from here Or you can do it via synaptic or Ubuntu Software center or via command line

sudo apt-get install samba

also, I can see my laptop from my desktop PC but I can't see my desktop computer from my laptop... I have samba on both and I have made the exact same thing on my laptop as on my Desktop computer. –  Jeff Labonte Sep 24 '12 at 20:58

You can use Transfer on LAN. It needs Java 6 then it works on Ubuntu, Windows, Mac. It is easy to use because no configuration is required.
