How to transfer over the files.

Chrome OS
The easiest way on Windows (7, 8, 10, 11) is to use TI-Connect CE
Another method is using TiLP.
ticalc.link is not a recommended method on Windows as there are many driver issues.
The easiest method to transfer files on Linux is to use TiLP or ticalc.link. Note that ticalc.link only works with compatible WebSerial browsers like Google Chrome.
Currently you can use TiLP on MacOS , ticalc.link, and TI Connect CE.
On Chrome OS you can use ticalc.link or TI Connect CE for Chrome OS both of these options are known to be buggy. If you have Linux on your Chromebook you should be able to use TiLP.
