What can I transfer to my new computer?
You can transfer most files and program settings. Specifically:
Files and folders. Everything within the Documents, Pictures, and Shared Documents folders.
E-mail settings, contacts, and messages. Messages, account settings, and address books from Microsoft Outlook Express, Outlook, Windows Mail, and other e-mail programs.
Program settings. Settings that keep your programs configured as you had them on your old computer. You must first install the programs on your new computer, because Windows Easy Transfer does not transfer the programs themselves. Some programs might not work on this version of Windows, including security programs (which are often not compatible with all versions of Windows), antivirus programs, firewall programs (your new computer should already have a firewall running to help ensure safety during the transfer), and programs with software drivers (some are not compatible with all versions of Windows).
User accounts and settings. Color schemes, desktop backgrounds, network connections, screen savers, fonts, Start menu options, taskbar options, folders, specific files, network printers and drives, and accessibility options.
Internet settings and favorites. Internet connection settings, favorites, and cookies.
Music. Electronic music files, playlists, and album art.
Pictures and video. Pictures-which includes any visual file type (for example, .jpg, .bmp, .gif)-and personal videos.
