Windows 7: Transferring Minesweeper Statistics to a new computer

Transferring Minesweeper Statistics to a new computer

So basically I just got a new computer, and would like to transfer my minesweeper records from my old computer to my new one. Both are running the same Windows 7 x64. The reason I want to transfer is because I became RIDICULOUSLY good with my old laptop, and will never come close with my new one (different mouse styles). I mostly played easy, but I became damn good at it. I had a 95% win rate over 10,000 games, which is ridiculous considering the number of no-win games. I also had my top 5 times at under 2 seconds, with an extremely rare one-click win top time of 0 (shows up as 1) seconds. Is there anyway to do this? I really, REALLY want to transfer my statistics...

The statistics are stored in C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Local\Microsoft Games. You'll need to enable hidden files and folders to see the AppData folder.

Thanks, I found the folder, but when I tried copying it into my new computer, the statistics didn't appear to transfer. Help?

EDIT: Never mind, It worked when I tried it again. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! You have no Idea how much this means to me, to see all my stats on my new computer. Quite literally the thing I was regretting losing the most!!!
