I have a brand new PC and have no clue to how to transfer all my data from my old PC to my new one, thank you in advance.

In case Windows Help doesn't give you quite what you want.

If you wish to transfer data only (music photos documents and so on), then you could copy the items you want to some go-between.

This can be
1 a pen drive
2 an external HD
3 CD or DVD

If you would rather 'hard wire' the two computers with a special USB connector and its software, it would be simple and quick, but unlike the other media of little use to you after the transfer.
