Windows 7: Transfer IE9 & W-L Mail to new computer. Both Win7

Transfer IE9 & W-L Mail to new computer. Both Win7

I bought a new netbook w/Win7 Starter. I loaded Win Live & installed Live Mail & IE9. I am try to transfer my contacts frm Live mail & Favorites from IE9 from my other computer that is running Win/7 Home Prem 64 bit to this new Netbook.

It used to be a no-brainer, but now it seems to be a mistery how to do it!

I am 82 & have been in computers all my life. My first computer was a TRS80.
But I think the modern bloatware programs have been "Featured to Death"

Regarding last question about IE9 Favorites:
Unless you manually changed location of this folder before
it should be in hidden folder
Copy this code and paste in your explorer address bar, hit enter.

I do not use Live Mail myself, but you can try the following:
Click Contacts - All Contacts - Export (.CVS)

And for importing same thing, but with Import button (See attached screenshots).
