How to transfer everything on old computer to new "all in one"?

Just purchased last night the HP all in one. How do I transfer everything from old to new? Not tech savvy. Step by step. Many thanks.

Oh I hope someone here can help you.  I am tech savvy but I hire someone to do this for me.

I must not be hard, it takes my 'compter guy' literally minutes to move thousands of files, several thousand downloads and photos all in the same location and drives as my previous computer.

Go to YouTube tutorials.  Step by step instructions.

Those YouTube videos didn’t help me when I bought a new laptop last year. The Windows software EasyTransfer is a joke.

 I also hired a computer guy who took care of it for me.

We pay Geek Squad through Best Buy and they help us with trouble shooting and set ups at home. That's the only thing I miss by not working -- our IT department.

You can't transfer programs but as to files, you can (and hopefully are already doing this!) back them up on an external drive and then plug that drive into the new computer and copy them onto it.   Super easy.

Or move them to a "cloud" like Dropbox.

It costs $99 for Geek Squad to make a housecall. After that they charge you according to the job they need to do. You might just want to take your new PC and your old PC hard drive with you to a Best Buy store and have them do it.

If you ask just about any high school or college student they would be able to do it for you in a few minutes. They would be happy with $20.
