I've loaded all my documents & pictures from File Explorer on my old laptop to flash drive and downloaded onto new laptop.  Can't figure out how to do the same for my contacts which are also on File Explorer.  Any suggestions?  Thanks

just copy your login name folder from the users folder on the old hard drive, then past back into the users folder on the new computer.


you'll copy all your documents downloads, favorites, contacts, and other personal info all in one pass.   you will have to import the contacts file to be able to see them.


but you'll have everything back except the physical programs on your new computer again.
