Maya on new computer, with same preferences

Hello,

when I want to move to a new computer and just keep Maya2020 as it is, can I just copy the Maya folder or just certain parts of it? I know there are many scripts and customizations and I hope to make it easier with copying instead installing everything from scratch.

Thanks for help

Your user-unique prefs are stored in your user directory, e.g. on Win it's C:\Users\<User>\Documents\maya\<20XX>\..  You not necessarily want to keep ALL the scripts/prefs, as those also might contain some outdated/buggy settings.

Plug-ins/addons, on the other hand, might require reinstalling individually.
