    If you’re using Windows 8.1 or Windows 10, your Microsoft account user profile will automatically transfer with a sign-in. If you currently use a local account instead of a Microsoft account, you may want to consider converting it to a Microsoft account. Some features, like OneDrive and device encryption, won’t work without it.

    This won’t bring everything over; you’ll still need to manually transfer any important files and reinstall programs with an external hard drive. Think of this as a quick way to bring over Windows settings and get cloud sync going.

    The conversion process is easy, especially if you already have a Microsoft account. If you don’t, you’ll need to make one. You’ll need to start this process on the PC with the account you want to transfer.

    Click on the Start button then the Settings gear. Then choose Accounts, followed by “Sign in with a Microsoft account” instead. Then follow the setup wizard.

    Next, we’ll manually move over data using Window 10’s File History tool. After connecting a hard drive go to Settings > Update & Security > Backup. Select add a drive, then your external hard drive.

    Windows will start making a backup automatically. By default, the backup includes the Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Music, Pictures, Videos folders. If you want additional folders, click on the “More options” text and choose the folders to add.

    Take your external to your new machine and plug it in. Go back to Settings > Update & Security > Backup, and setup file history again using the external drive from before. Click more options, scroll to the bottom (past the list of folders) and click “restore files from a current backup.”

    Browse to your most recent backup, choose the folders you want to restore then click on the green button.

    File history restore dialog, showing folders that have been saved.

    You will need to reinstall any programs to finish things up.
