How to upgrade my laptop and keep the programs that are currently installed?

Question: I need to have my notebook reconfigured but do not want to lose the programs. Can I move them to an external drive and then return them to my notebook as it is reconfigured? What is the best way to do this?

Answer: 

This is a very common dilemma, and the problem is that Windows doesn't allow you to simply copy and paste programs to another hard drive or computer. Each program has a series of settings that are stored in the Windows registry, and a series of libraries that also need to be transferred. In short, there's really no way to manually transfer software programs without the help of a transfer utility program.

Fortunately there's a program called Zinstall that I recommend you take a look at. Their Migration Kit Pro is able to transfer all of your programs, documents, music, pictures, favorites, emails, accounts, settings, etc. It handles all of the Windows registry settings and makes sure all of your software program libraries are properly installed on the new system (or in your case, your reconfigured laptop).

The nice things about Zinstall is that you don't have to be a computer guru and you don't need any cables. The product is completely automatic and intuitive to use and if you can connect both computers to the Internet, then you are all set - nothing else is needed.

That means you won't have to wait for the software to be shipped to your location. Just download it, and start transferring.

Here's what CNN said in a recent review of Zinstall:

"Zinstall WinWin: The product will transfer everything - programs, settings and files - to your new PC. No cables needed."

Zinstall works with Windows 10, Windows 8/8.1, Windows 7, XP and Vista, any edition, 32- and 64-bit. You can transfer from any Windows to any Windows, any PC model to any PC model. XP or Vista to Windows 10, 7 to 10 or even Windows 10 to Windows 10 are all supported.
