The easiest way to transfer files in a dual-boot setup is to access the Windows partition while running Linux. You should be able to see and access the Windows partition from Linux’s file manager. If you tell me the name and version of what distribution your running, I can give more specific instructions.

Finally, I don’t know if you’re looking for other ideas but instead of dual-booting you might consider running one operating system as a virtual machine. Oracle’s VirtualBox program is easy to use, and you can use both operating systems (or even more than two) at once; no need for rebooting, partitioning, etc.
