[ad]Dear Computer Lady,
Bought a new Windows 8 Laptop.
How do I get all my E mail addresses and Favorites off the old Desktop computer into the new Laptop?
Thanks for any help you can give me. Pat
Transferring all your files and information from an older computer to a new one is a service that I provide for my customers quite often.
The answer to your question depends on what version of Windows you had on your old computer, and where you had your old email addresses stored.
If you are upgrading from XP, I have directions on my website at:

If your old laptop is running Windows Vista or 7, you can simply copy the “Contacts” and “Favorites” folders from the old computer to the same location in the new computer.
If you live in the area, I would be happy to provide this service for you.
It’s Your Turn: What do you think?
