I saw Office fail after such a move. My take is this is less than perfect.

Let me share that I've seen these and after a dozen tries with each one I'm back to tried and true methods. While Easy Transfer does ok it still missed a few items and back to the old machine to pick that up. Then install a few programs and away we go.

To date there is nothing that will give the person that wants to move it all (programs and data) from machine to machine flawlessly.

-> No doubt MSFT and other companies don't get it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
