How to migrate from mac to mac?

How to migrate from one mac to another?

I would need to move all applications, and if possible, settings to another machine.

(Asked before about cloning, but would prefer just moving files.)


Thanks!

Some applications live only in the applications folder and others may spread out to other areas. I think you are best off installing your applications fresh.  For your data files, you can just turn on sharing and and drag and drop folders and files within the network.

If you are moving from an old Mac to a newly purchased one, Apple does this for you automatically. When you first start the new Mac it will ask you if you want to copy settings, applications and file from an old Mac and will instruct you to connect the Macs by ethernet or USB or over a network and will then copy everything automatically using Migration Assistant.

Don't try it over wifi though as that would take too long.
