I have a laptop and a new PC, each with windows 8 installed. I have my user account/profile on my laptop and need the same exact thing on my new PC, that is all my documents on my desktop, my chrome bookmarks, saved links etc (basically everything). Is that possible? If yes, please guide me.

Thank you.

You can use Windows Easy Transfer:

Microsoft offers their own tool, known as “Windows Easy Transfer.” It’s built into Windows. The tool is built into Windows 7, 8, and 8.1. Launch it by tapping the Windows key to open the Start menu or Start screen, typing “Easy Transfer” without the quotes to search for it, and pressing Enter.

The above source link also includes some other ways to transfer your settings.

  • Is this transfer 100% efficient and successful or is there any risk of loss of data? Also, will my Google chrome settings also be reproduced on my new PC with all my bookmarks, saved links etc? – Zahra Mar 12 '17 at 18:11
  • @Zahra I've no idea. I've never used it. – DavidPostill Mar 12 '17 at 18:12
