I have two laptops that are running Windows 8.1 and running on the same wireless network.

 

Is there a program that I can have on each either through the store, a download, a pay program, or whatever would be best that can

 

Either

 

1) Send Messages to each other (wife and I)

or

2) Send Files to each other

 

and hopefully 1 & 2.

 

Thanks for any advice.

Send messages? You mean like Skype? As for transferring files, set up a Homegroup. It's built right into Windows 8.1. It's a pretty painless setup too.
