    1- Borrow or purchase an empty USB flash drive with enough capacity to hold the files you wish to transfer.

    2- Insert the USB drive to a USB port on the old computer.

    3- Copy the files you wish to transfer to the USB drive.

    4- Now move the USB drive to a USB port on the new computer.

    5- Copy or move the files from the USB drive to the new computer.
