Steam Deck: Transfer files from Windows to Deck

If you still have a Windows system somewhere, and you want to transfer files to the deck, you can easily transfer those files using SSH/SCP.
By default, the deck has a ssh server installed, but this isn’t started.
You can easily enable that using a terminal on the deck, and execute:

sudo systemctl enable sshd
sudo systemctl start sshd

Once ssh has been started, you can use for example winscp on the windows station to connect to the deck.
You can find the IP of the deck by using the command below, within that same terminal:

ip addr
