How to Migrate to a New PC

You probably know the feeling: You sit down at a new computer,
excited by its potential, only to realize that so much of what
you really need is still stuck on your older system. Trading
up to a new PC and a new operating system can be a bit like
moving into a newer, bigger house; you've got to pack up and
relocate every little thing you've amassed over the years, and
then customize your new surroundings before it really feels
like you're at home. But how are you going to transfer your
address book, e-mails, data files, Internet favorites, digital
music and photos, specialized applications, desktop wallpaper
and screen savers, and all your other personal paraphernalia,
not to mention your application and system settings? Read today's
tip to learn how.
