Transfer Data from Old Computer to New One

I'm getting a new computer and was wondering if there was a easy way to
transfer all the programs and files from my old computer to my new one.

Thanks for any help. Happy Holidays,

You'll need to install any programs or applications. Data files can be transferred several different ways depending on the total disk space they occupy now. CDs, DVDs, flash/jump/thumb/pen drives, external HDDs, etc.,

Believe this has been well covered numerous time here on CNET ...let us know if you can't find it.

Since you didn't tell us. . .

what OS, or even if these are MACs, all I can think of is the "Files and Settings Transfer Wizard".
