How do I share files between Windows 10 (host) and Ubuntu 20 (guest)?

This post was originally published on this site

There appear to be many solutions for this that I have found in different forums but for each of them that I have tried, something seems to fail.   I can not seem to get open-vm-tools-desktop to load properly — the guest-side folder is not being created, namely, /mnt/hgfs.   There is evidence that the tools package is being loaded because I can copy-paste text from the host to the guest but I can not transfer files.   Can someone point me to a good source for instructions?
