There are a few ways you can transfer your holiday photos, videos and important work documents to a new Windows 10 laptop. Whether you want to use a portable hard drive, cloud storage services like Google Drive or an Ethernet cable to connect the two computers, we’ll show you what to do.
All set! There you have it. All your precious memories have made the journey with you to your new laptop!
All set! You can access Google Drive from your smartphone or tablet too, perfect if you’re switching laptops all the time and need access to your work.
All set! Your precious memories have made the move with you to your new device. If you have Microsoft Office, you can save Word documents, Excel spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations straight to your OneDrive account, so you can access them wherever and whenever you want.
First things first, if you’re using an Ethernet cable you’ll need to make sure both laptops have an Ethernet port. These cables usually have identical colour patterns on each end but you’ll need a special ‘crossover’ cable – where the different colours don’t match up.
All set! Now you can simply copy any work documents, precious photos or music that you want to transfer and paste them somewhere on your new device. It’s as easy as pie so you’ll be done before you know it!
