How To Easily Transfer Files And Settings From Windows XP To Newer Versions of Windows

Windows XP is one of the most successful operating systems from Microsoft. Even after 12 years of release, still it is used in majority of windows machines. Since, Microsoft has officially pulled the plug on Windows XP yesterday, there will be no more support and updates will be available. So, if you are long time Windows XP user and want to migrate to a new operating system, here is a new application for you to quickly transfer the files. It is called “PC Mover Express” which lets you transfer all the files from your Windows XP machine to another PC through network quickly and here’s how it works.


Microsoft has an official partnership with the Laplink application. So, you can download the app from Microsoft’s website for free using the link below. You have to install the application on both the machines you need to transfer the files. Once you complete the installation, in the homepage you can see the set of instructions to use the application.  There you have the PC to PC transfer option by default and you can view the user guide over there. Click “Next” to proceed further.


In the next window, you have to choose, whether this is a Windows XP machine or the Windows 7/Windows 8 PC. After choosing that, follow the same procedure in the other machine. Both the machines need to be connected with Internet. In the next step, you have to choose the mode of connectivity. There will be three options like Ethernet, WiFi and USB Cable. If you don’t have a cable, you can order one online right from the application. Once you select the PCs, it will analyze both the machines and start the transfer.
