    GUIDE:How to transfer contacts from Microsoft Outlook to Gmail

    I'm sitting here in the office, its the end of the year in the school system, and several employees transferring to alternative counties. With this it brings loads of transferring contacts to take with them from their company phone. Well, this one in particular sparked a guide idea. So here it is, How to transfer Outlook contacts to your Gmail account.


    Step 1: Sign in to your outlook account.
    step 2 In the top left hand corner click File > Import/Export > Export to file > Browse to desired place to save your file > export. Be sure you export the file as .csv (comma separated values)
    Step 3 Log into your Gmail account
    Step 4 Select 'Contacts' In the subsection you will see a 'Import' button on the right-hand side. Click it.
    Step 5 Browse to the location where you saved it > Open it > Click Import.



    I would have provided pictures, but I use neither Outlook or Gmail. Hope someone somewhere gets some use from this. *Toast :toast:

    How to transfer old SSD into new laptop?

    Hello, my old laptop is shorting the charger and won’t turn on. I'm long overdue for an upgrade anyway, so I’m getting a new one soon. Since the old one can’t turn on, I can’t use any file transfer utilities to transfer the contents of the old one to the new one. So I was thinking I can just take the SSD from the old one and install it in the secondary slot of the new one.

    My question is: can this be done as simply as that or are there other considerations at play? For example, the SSD I’ll be transferring was the primary drive of the old laptop and has the OS installed on it. Is there something I need to do so the new laptop sees the old SSD as a storage drive only, and doesn’t try to boot with the OS from the old one? Do I need to do something with the drive lettering so there’s no confusion over which one is the C drive? Will all my installations (like my internet security suite, for example) work normally automatically, or do I need to do something special?

    Basically I’m asking how take the old boot drive and install it into the laptop as just a secondary drive into the new one. Also, my old laptop has an HD as a secondary drive. Can I transfer that one also without any fussing around or is there something special I need to do for that one as well?

    (In case it matters, my new laptop will be the same as the old -Alienware 17 from Dell, just upgraded.- I am waiting for Windows 11 to be released before purchasing the new one so I don’t have to deal with upgrading from 10 to 11. So I’ll be installing an old SSD with Win10 as a secondary drive on a machine with Win11 running from the primary)

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    How to transfer old SSD into new laptop?

    There must be exceptions to the ownership rules. As an experiment, I took a clone of the data drive from my other system and installed it in this system. When I double clicked on a folder on the clone drive, I got this message:


    I am attempting to transfer Outlook folders that are resident on my old Dell laptop's SSD... [​IMG]

    When I clicked on continue, I was able to open any folder and read the contents.

    I use the same usernames and passwords on both systems, so maybe this is an exception?
