    Here is what I did:

    Moved the OneNote Notebooks file from the old Win 7 machine to the new Win 8.1P machine. The "Notebooks" file is located in the Documents folder. I simply copied it to the...

    IT WORKED!!!!!

    :thewave:

    I will post a detailed solution later today.

    ruirib, thanks for all your help. You forced me to ask myself a number of perhaps, not so obvious, questions and that...
  3. Well, I think I just answered some of my...

    Well, I think I just answered some of my questions. I searched the web and found that OneNote maintains a registry entry called "OpenNotebooks". So, I am thinking that if I moved that entry from...
  4. Okay, so what you are saying is the OneNote will...

    Okay, so what you are saying is the OneNote will not open the Notebooks in the "notebooks" file on the Win 8.1P machine by itself. This means that when I bring a Notebook file from a different...
  5. If I knew better, I would not be posting here. I...

    If I knew better, I would not be posting here. I did try your suggestion opening using the .onetoc2 file and this did not seem to resolve the problem. I come here looking for help understanding why...
  6. I am sorry, but that makes absolutely no sense to...

    I am sorry, but that makes absolutely no sense to me that I would have to do that. It is a lot of work to individually open each Notebook. I do not understand why OneNote cannot open the Notebooks...

    Ruirib, here is what I did:

    - I deleted the existing OneNote Notebook file from its location on the Win 8.1P machine - c:/users/myid/documents/OneNote Notebooks

    - I copied the old OneNote...

    I didn't write anything down, so it is a bit difficult for me to remember exactly what I did, but I am going to remove all related data files from my new machine tomorrow and go through the process...
  9. Moving OneNote Notebooks to a new machine (win 8.1 Pro) from old machine (Win 7 SP1)

    Here we go again! I have a considerable number of "notes" in OneNote on my old machine running Win 7 and OneNote 2010. I want to move them to my new machine which is Windows 8.1 Professional and...

    IE11 messing up custom home page tabs

    I have IE11 set to open up a number of "Home Page" tabs. I set these up under Tools-->Internet Options and then put the URLs in the Home Page panel. I have the first entry as the local "news"...

    I went to their site downloaded the software, even paid for it. Installed it on both machines and connected them with the Belkin Transfer cable that I have - the cable is showing green so assume...

    No, I don't think you are missing something. I do have some backups, but this means that I will be restoring from a HDD - no problem, but I don't always backup every single file that needs to be...
  13. Thanks for the warning, but I don't believe that...

    Thanks for the warning, but I don't believe that any of the files that I want to move are system files. Win 8.1 will be installed on the new machine and will bring its own "hidden" files with it. ...

    Prescott, I did not realize that Microsoft had played this trick on its users either, which is why I started this thread. I will not be moving to another OS. It looks like BruceR has identified a...
  15. BruceR, thanks for the insight. I do have the...

    BruceR, thanks for the insight. I do have the Belkin cable that is labelled F5U279, so maybe this piece of software that I am looking for. Thanks for the links. I will definitely follow up on...
  16. Well mate, thanks for the insight, but I have...

    Well mate, thanks for the insight, but I have long been able to handle such machine to machine transfers, so the technical aspect of it doesn't really bother me. What bothers me is that Microsoft in...

    I obviously didn't provide enough detail as to my requirements - sorry about that. I want to be able to transfer all my "data" files - Word docs, Excel spreadsheets, Power Point presentations,...
  18. How do I transfer files from an old Win 7 computer to a new running Win 8.1 Professional

    Well, it seems like Microsoft has screwed the Windows user again! Why am I not surprised, after all they gave us Windows 8? :o:

    I am in the process of acquiring a new, custom built machine. My...

    Rui, thanks for the suggestion about the "Send to..." option. I had forgotten that one.

    Ron M :) :) :)

    Internet Explorer 10 is the browser, but guess what? For some unknown reason, "it" started copying pictures again. Problem is resolved, but not "solved", because this was the second or third time...
  21. OneNote 2010 - not copying pictures and embedded objects?

    I save a lot of material from the web and other sources on OneNote. Until recently, whenever I copied something off the web, everything, text, figures, pictures, etc., would copy okay. In the past...

    Folks, thanks for all the suggestions. The easiest seems to be what Philomel has suggested, to open a new file, copy the old one, save it under a new name and delete the old one and then rename the...

    Paul, thanks for the ideas, however, there has been no crash and no other copy of Excel is running. This happens even if I open Excel after I do my daily boot-up. Any more thoughts on this.

    Thanks Clint. I will go and see what the manufacturer has about getting into the BIOS. I would have shared the tidbit about the attached HD, but I was unaware that this behaviour was not uncommon. ...
