Topic is not correct but I guess it may be the closest one. I want to transfer programs and files to my laptop in the easiest way possible. I am not very computer literate so any suggestions please put them in layman terms

it depends if your two computers have the same operating system
If you are moving incompatible programs from an old system, it may not be a good thing.
There is software that will allow you to do this quite easily, but sometimes certain programs will work better if they are completely reinstalled.
