For those keeping track, a leaked screenshot from build 9418 shows a new way to transfer settings and other data from a Windows 8.1 PC to another Windows 8.1 PC. It appears that a wizard will helps you transfer settings from Skydrive. This will include app settings, specific info from apps, other devices connect to your PC, and other PC settings that do not sync between PCs.
Hopefully this makes it easier for those who need to transfer their settings to a new PC. See the full screenshot below.
