Screenshots: Trouble free migration with Windows Easy Transfer

Accessing the Windows Easy Transfer from the Start screen is easy

Getting started

Once you have your Windows XP and Windows 8 systems on the network, you're ready to get started. You'll begin by launching Windows Easy Transfer on your Windows 8 system. While there are several ways that you can launch Windows Easy Transfer, the quickest way is to use the [Windows] + Q keystroke to access the Apps Search page and then type Easy in the text box. When Windows Easy Transfer appears in the search results, as shown in Figure A, just click the icon. Credit: Images by Greg Shultz for TechRepublic
