teyteytey,

 

:welcome:

 

Can not transfer settings from one PC to another, just have to set the settings manually on new PC if i am understanding this is not an upgrade to Windows 10, but a new PC bought with Windows 10.

Files can be transferred if have them on a USB Flash Drive, external USB Hard drive or a cd/dvd disc, whichever is best for your PC. As you should always backup your important files to an external device or disc regularly.

As far as applications you have to reinstall them again on new PC, mattering to how old the applications are may need to check for updates to them if not, check if they are compatible with new Operating system. Hope this helps if i understood everything you asked correctly.

Total Uninstaller has the ability to transfer programs from one pc to another. Effectively you 'uninstall' to a package, copy the packages to your new PC and run TU on said new PC to reinstall. Not tried in on W10 though.

Windows Easy Transfer can transfer files and settings from one computer running Windows to another. It helps you choose what to move to your new computer, such as user accounts, Internet favorites, and e‑mail. It also lets you decide which method to use and then performs the transfer.

Or you can transfer OS, data, files and software from an old computer to a new computer.

Windows Easy Transfer is no longer available in Windows 10.  Microsoft recommends PCmover from Laplink for this operation.
