software to clone 1 win 7 pro computer to a win 10 pro computer

Upgrading win 7 pro to win 10 pro.  Have not cloned before, but is there a software out there that can connect 1 computer to the other and copy ALL files and settings to it?
Not sure if I am even asking that right.

There are lots of migration tools out there. windows 10 even has a migration tool you can use
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/usmt/usmt-overview
Here is a list of migration tools if you dont want to use the one built into windows 10

Note they are not all free
Note also to transfer files from one pc to another you may need a special cable, or a cross over network cable, unless you back it up to an external drive then connect this drive to the new computer.

Will these migration tools copy all files to the correct folders?  Documents to Documents?  What about programs like Google Earth, Office 365, Adobe Acrobat Pro, that I have purchased.  Will these migrate over with license/reg keys or do I have to do this manually?
