Try connecting both computers together via ethernet and connect one to wifi and give it a static ip on ethernet on a differenet subnet than your network, on the computer that does have wifi don’t set a gateway but on the other computer set the laptop with wifi’s ip as the gateway and it should work

The S8 is not a computer, it's a smartphone by Samsung.

What you're looking for is tethering via USB. Enable it on your phone and connect the USB cable between phone and PC. I don't see anything on sharing wifi though.

What you need to do is make your S8 a wifi hotspot under settings->Wifi & Internet->Hotspot,  and then connect to that wifi from your PC, but to do that you need to be able to connect wireless from your PC(you need a wifi dongle if it's not a laptop and motherboard doesn't have wifi)
