That could be tricky.  Signatures are stored in %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Signatures, so unless you saved this folder or still have access to it, the signatures may be gone.

If you have access to the old folder, you are good to go.

Mount the pst file, the signature will be all over your mails. Put it in your clipboard and go to options, mail options - signatures and paste it.

I am not clear what you mean by mount the pst file.  In outlook I only have an open option and an import option.  Which of those two do I use?

"mount the PST file" means open it and the suggestion was to look at emails that have the signatures you want and copy those into Outlook Signatures.

You may not need to go back to the old PST as you have a working email file. Look in here for signatures you can copy.

Put it in the folder in the new computer that holds signatures.

Should be:  %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Signatures
