Can I transfer my files from old PC to a new computer in Windows 10?

"Hi does anyone know a simple way that can transfer or move all saved files from the old computer to a new computer in Windows 10 or Windows 8/7? 

My old Windows 7 computer becomes slower recently, and it often gets stuck if I run two or three programs together at the same time. Then I bought a new PC with Windows 10. Everything works great on the new computer, and now all I need is to move the saved files from my old PC to the new machine. The problem is that I got quite a lot of files saved on different partitions and I don't want to copy files one by one to the new device. I wonder if I can move or migrate all files to a new computer at one time, things will be perfect. 
So if anyone of you knows how to solve my problem, please let me know. Thank you.
