Use the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard to transfer all your personal settings and files onto a Flash Drive or another hard drive. Then you can import them to your new computer.
You'll find it at Start\Programs\Accessories\System Tools\Files and Settings Transfer Wizard.
Even tho my desktop icons are mostly all shortcuts incl shortcuts to websites, I would still like to transfer all the icons at one time so I could then test them on the new desktop to see which need addl work.
Can I just copy the Desktop icons found in Documents and Settings>(user)>Desktop?
