Windows 10 Transfer

Posted on Jun 10, 2015 by Jean to PC Transfer

Windows 10 transfer is to move items including pictures, videos and applications together with settings from an old Windows 7/8/XP/Vista computer to a new Windows 10 computer.

Does Windows 10 keep using "Windows Easy Transfer"?

Is "Windows Easy Transfer" likely to return to Windows 10? Many friends told me that the built-in transfer tool is not good to use, and won't satisfy my demand yet. I wonder if they said the truth, but I desperately need Windows 10 transfer to help move my favourites from my Windows 7 PC to a new computer, which I plan to install Windows 10.

One more thing should be mentioned. Is there any possibility to keep accounts and settings of my old applications on my new Windows 10 computer? I will appreciate any solution that helps.

Windows 10 transfer is to move items including user accounts, documents, music, pictures, videos, emails, Internet favourites and applications together with settings from an old Windows 7/8/XP/Vista computer to a new Windows 10 computer. Windows 10 transfer sounds terrific, playing both roles of a transfer tool and a clone tool which allows to keep the exact properties of those items on a new operating system computer.

However, not all the transfer demands can be satisfied by using Windows 10 Easy Transfer. i.e. Windows Easy Transfer does not support application transfer.

Recommended Windows 10 transfer alternative

We recommend EaseUS Todo PCTrans as a Windows 10 transfer alternative. Besides the similarities shared by the two tools, there are some differences when it comes to ease of use, transferring channels and compatibility with operating system. As a third party program, EaseUS Todo PCTrans outcomes its competitor in those mentioned aspects.
