New Computer Guide

4 steps to complete before you get your new computer:

1. Back up your files

  • Move all of your files to OneDrive, Teams, or an external hard drive.
  • This includes any files saved to your Desktop, Documents folder, or any other location on your hard drive. Move all of your files to OneDrive, Teams, or an external hard drive.

2. Export all browser bookmarks

  • Save your browser favorites/bookmarks as an .html file to the same place you saved your files.
  • Click the browser icon below for specific directions on how to save your bookmarks/favorites as an html file. These links also include directions on how to import your favorites/bookmarks into your new computer.

3. Gather items needed for third-party software

  • Make a list of any third-party software you will need installed on the new computer.
  • Make sure you have all installation tools (discs, download links, logins, etc) and licenses/keys needed to install your software.

While AIT strives to maintain detailed documentation to aid in future installations or troubleshooting, we are not always able to document licensing information or have access to installation tools.
Therefore AIT is not responsible for maintaining third-party software records.

4. Have a plan for your old computer

  • Coordinate with your supervisor or property office to have it surplussed or repurposed
