Mac-to-Surface Migration Tool Released

Mac-to-Surface Migration Tool Released

Microsoft has quietly released a new tool for making the transition from a Mac to Windows easier. There’s no formal announcement about the tool but it looks to make the switch (back for many?) from a Mac to Windows smoother.

The Mac to Surface Asistant looks a lot like Apple’s Migration Assistant. It allows you to select what files and folders you want to move to your Surface device. Although, despite the name, I suspect it will help move from any Mac to any computer running Windows 10.

For what it’s worth, I work multi-platform and find most of what this new tool can do is handled by simply working with cloud services for email and file storage. But it’s a sign Microsoft is looking to expand market share by pulling back some of the people who switched to Mac when that was what the cool kids did.

  • I wonder if anyone outside of the Microsoft marketing department will ever open the app.

  • Who needs a conversion tool? I use Windows at work, & Mac at home. My files sync via Dropbox, my mail, contacts & calendar via Google & Office 365
