Installing a new PC and have the same layout of the actual win XP PC


I may need to upgrade my father in law PC to Win 7 or get him a new PC

My main point is I need to make sure that I will have nearly the same screen appearance. At 91, he don't want to relearn.

So, how can I transfer is actual setup if I upgrade to same system with win 7 or a complete new PC

Is actual system is a Pentium with 3 GB

You can't other than to arrange things manually. You can't upgrade from XP to Windows 7, you have to do a Custom (Clean) install.

Windows 7 is somewhat different than XP but still basically the same. You will have to do some hand holding but not a lot I don't think.

Run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor on his computer, see what it tells you.
