I have Microsoft Virtual PC 6.0 installed.
I want to export the .vhd so I can use them on another computer.
How do I do that?

There's really no export needed.  Just shut down the VM and copy the file.  Then recreate the VM and point it to that VHD for use as the VM's hard drive.

NOTE: if you go between VM platforms, you may have issues - meaning Virtual PC to HyperV, for example.
