Definition: Laplink

A file transfer program for Windows from Laplink Software, Inc., Bellevue, WA (www.laplink.com). This veteran product, first introduced in 1987 and noted for its ease of use, has been so widely used that people often refer to "laplinking" as a general term for file transfer. Laplink 2000 was the first version of the software to provide file transfer over the Internet. Earlier versions supported transfer between PCs and Macs. Laplink.com was formerly Traveling Software, Inc. See Laplink cable and how to transfer a file.
