  1. how to migrate to a new Windows 10 laptop?


    Hello,


    It's time to replace my 6 year old laptop with a new one. But I have about 50 applications installed. Some I don't remember how they got there, others for which I don't have the install executables anymore and others for which I might have some installation CD's.

    Now, is there a SIMPLE way to migrate everything that I have on my current Windows 10 computer to a new laptop? Or do I have to reinstall everything again if at all possible?


    Thank you

    :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    how to migrate to a new Windows 10 laptop?

    Migrating a Windows 10 installation (OS, APPs, and settings) to a new hard drive on a laptop

    Not positive this is the right forum area, but it looks like the best fit.

    I wish to migrate my Windows 10 installation to a new larger hard disk drive. The challenge is that my laptop can only have one disk drive installed at a time, so many of the suggestions I found elsewhere which involved cloning software don't seem to be
    options for me. Ii am looking for suggestions as to the simplest and most reliable way to transfer my system, settings and apps to a new hard drive. Thanks in advance.
