"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

connect the 2 computers via a network switch or a cross-over cable and copy over the various folders i.e. documents/pictures/music/video's

look the same from his Windows vista home premium laptop  not really possible..  clone the hard drive, upgrade to windows 7, then upgrade to windows 10, after that it is a get used to the new UI
