Migrate Cura to another PC

I want to migrate Cura to another PC, transferring all settings.

I plan to install the latest Cura (5.0) on the current PC, which takes the current settings to the new Cura automatically, then install this version on the new PC and finally copy the cura folder from C:\[user]\appdata\roaming\cura\5.0 over the one on the new PC. Is this procedure correct?

    That will need to be done.  In addition, I would bring a calibration cube into the existing Cura installation, select the printer and a Settings Profile, and use the "File | Save Project" command to create a 3mf file.  Do that for each profile you want to save.

    In your new installation you would open each of those project files and the Printer, Model, and Settings will be imported.  It would be a safeguard in case something doesn't carry over when copying the AppData folder.

    If you have customized your StartUp or Ending gcodes of your printer then you should make up a 3mf file for sure as the new installation might install a printer from the stock definition files.  You could possibly lose any customizing you have done.

    You can also 'mis-use' the backup feature for this (you need an Ultimaker Account though). Create a backup on PC 1, then restore it in PC 2, done!
