Depending on the O/S installed (think mostly the same nowadays (windows types) look for a Welcome/ getting started in the start menu ( or search for it) choose transfer your files ,it should guide you through it. Point it at the folder the guy saved it to ever if just copied documents just drag n drop into the correct place
