After you find your cryptocurrency of choice, click on the deposit button seen on the screen. This will redirect you to the deposit address pop-up tab.

Depending on whichever network you want to use, click copy on that address. Which network you pick is very important because it decides the fee you will pay. A very clogged and congested blockchain network will cost you a lot and will take some time whereas a cheap and fast one will be much better. Make sure both exchanges support the network, sending from one network to another will result in you losing your cryptocurrencies.
