Please have a look at http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Windows/XP/Q_23040423.html
before responding here. I have those answers, need new ones.
I am trying (hoping?) to get all my apps, files, and settings over to new computer from old one. Both are running XP. I have the PCMover app, and have a VGA switch (though it did not come with VGA male to male cables, which took me an enitre afternoon to find online at a decent price), so I can run both machines and switch my one monitor.
Now I have discovered I cannot do any kind of transfer for want of a cable to connect computer to computer.
This is (inevitably) going to be a series of questions. And if you cannot speak geekless, simple-ese, with NO technical term unexplained, preferably with pictures, this is not a post for you.
The first question is, How Do I Connect the Two Computers?
I have read assorted stuff about direct cable this or that, have no idea what kind of cable they're talking about. Really must SEE A PICTURE. Read somewhere about using a USB cable, but none of mine have the PC end on both ends.
Also could find no satisfacory answer to this first question from search of EE.
Thanks for helping out.
