So I got my new SSD today and I put Windows 8.1 on it and so far I LOVE how smooth it is!
Anyway, I still have my old 500GB HDD that has Windows 7 on it, with all my old settings and I want to know if it's possible to transfer all my programs from my Windows 7 HDD to my Windows 8, so that they will show up in the Programs and Features list and what not.
I don't want to go through re-installing ALL these programs all over again, I want to know if there's a way to transfer them all so that they are legitimately on my SSD now with Windows 8.
As of right now I can only get access to some programs by locating them in My Computer and finding the Windows 7 HDD and going into the Program Files from there. Is it possible to move those to the Windows 8 drive besides simply just copy and pasting?
