    Windows Easy Transfer Stuck


    I recently bought a new Windows 8.1 computer to replace my old 8.1 laptop. I was going to use Windows Easy Transfer to transfer all my settings and files, but I accidentally (on my old computer) clicked "This is my new computer" and I cannot change it to old. Please help.

    I'm thinking this might take a registry hack. Hopefully Brink or one of the super brains will respond. Meanwhile, not so smart me will research.

    Not finding much searching. How about restore point before you started Easy Transfer?
