What Are User Account Settings

A Microsoft Windows user profile or User account settings describe the Windows configuration for a specific user, including the user's environment and preference settings relating to installing applications, desktop icons, and color options. For example, your personalization setting, your power settings, and wallpapers are all included in the user account settings. 

It is inconvenient to change the settings on a new computer so that it can have the same settings as your old one. A better choice is to migrate or transfer your old settings to the new PC or laptop. Of course, simply copy and paste the user profile doesn't make sense. To migrate your user account settings, you need the help of EaseUS Todo PCTrans. This tried and true free PC to PC transfer software can help you do the following thing with ease:

  • Support Windows easy transfer of system settings, files, and applications across Windows operating system. For example, from Windows 10 to Windows 10, from Windows 7 to Windows 10.
  • Support easy transfer both on the same computer and between computers.
  • Support two transfer modes: via creating an image file or via the network.
