If you have a USB connection to the PC (as well as the WiFi you mention) you could send it over the serial port. You'd need an application on the PC to receive it and save it to a file. On Windows, you can use Gobetwino for that. On any other OS, you'd need to write your own.

If you want to use the WiFi then you need a server application that you can access via TCP/IP. A web server would be the most obvious choice, but there are other protocols you could use instead, or you could write your own custom app,
