email migration

Email carrier migrating from Windows 7 to Windows 10…

Given that electronic messaging is a primary function for computer users, it is telling that Microsoft has provided no easy free method to migrate emails and contacts from Windows 7 live mail to Windows 10 Mail.

Before upgrading to Windows 10…

  1. Export your emails, contacts and favorites, using the tools built into whatever email client you are using on your Windows 7 machine.  Save those exports to a flash drive stick.
  2. If you use proprietary software (Microsoft Office for example) identify the costs and possibilility of continuing to use  that software on Windows 10.  For instance, do you have the license keys? 
  3. Have you backed up all of your computer to a image that can be mounted and explored in the Wiindows 10 file manager?  Macrium Reflect allows that.
  4. If you have been relying on a browser (e.g. Internet Explorer) to store your passwords, export them to a flash drive
