Exporting your settings is easy. In addition, you might want to consider doing the same with your browser history and saved passwords. See the guides at the end of this article.
Export and Import your Settings
Open the Run box or a new Windows Explorer window and copy and paste the following path: %appdata%\Microsoft\Office
You will see one or more ‘Auto Correct List Files’. Copy these to a place you’ll be able to access them on your new PC, such as OneDrive
Then, on your new PC or profile, open the same location and paste the files into the same location, overwriting the existing files.
Your customisations have now been copied!
Copy your Browser Data too!
