Good points. Thank you. Its only a Win 7 to Win 10 transfer.

Small additional issue is merging the two History files!

 <path to profile
 director>\download_history
 <path to
 profile director>\pvr
 
 The  latter is a subdirectoy.
 
 But why not just copy the
 whole profile directory?  That's what I would 
 do.  There are other things in it which
 certainly used to be important 
 and may
 still be so, such as:
      .swfinfo
      cookies.desktop
     
 options
      *.cache
 
 Note that if you've moved the profile
 directory to elsewhere on the new 
 computer,
 all the paths in the download_history will be wrong. This
 will 
 probably only matter in unusual
 circumstances, but you could do a global 
 change and replace and save the file as edited.
 Mention of which reminds 
 me ...
 
 Note also that if you are
 moving these files from, say, a Windows PC to 
 a Linux PC, you will need to change the
 line-endings in the files using 
 dos2unix or
 similar.
