Chapter 7. Exploring Windows XP Accessories > Bring Your Old Computer with You

Bring Your Old Computer with You

The Files and Settings Transfer Wizard is new to Windows XP and can save you time and frustration if you are moving from another computer to your HP Pavilion. The Files and Settings Transfer Wizard allows you to copy various files and settings from one computer to another. For example, you can download all the contacts from any address books and transfer settings for hardware or other features from another computer to your Pavilion.

The easiest way to run this wizard is to have a connection between your old and new computer. You can connect with a serial cable that plugs into the back of your computers or use a network connection. This gets a little technical, but the savings in time because you don't have to reenter information or redo settings can be worth it.
