What is the simplest way to customize a new installation of Notepad++ to the color scheme I am used to?

A few days ago my PC motherboard died. Because the entire system is so old, my nephew (who builds my systems) and I decided to replace everything. As part of the process, he installed a new 2TB main drive (Drive C:) and moved the previous 1TB main drive to Drive D:. As result, I still have access to everything on the previous main drive.

Several years ago I began using Notepad++. I remember that initially, it took quite a bit of time and multiple comments from EE experts to correctly configure the color schemes I wanted. Now I have downloaded and installed a new version of Notepad++ and I'm hoping someone can tell me how to acquire the color scheme settings from the previous version (now on Drive D:) and insert them into the new version on Drive C:

In other words, I'd really love to avoid all the time and energy expended last time in getting the color schemes set up.

Is that doable?

Thanks a bunch for any help you can render.
