All songs.
All files, from Local settings>Application Data>Mixxx

Check for the files mixxx.cfg and mixxxdb.sqlite on your old computer to identify the correct Application Data folder.

Do not copy applications installed in Program Files! Instead use the installer for this purpose.

Don't forget to copy all your music files to the exact same location on the new computer. Do this preferably before starting Mixxx for the first time. Otherwise all your tracks might be marked as Missing upon the initial library scan and you would need to rescan your library again to restore them.

When starting Mixxx you should see the contents of your library and all tracks should be available.

Please explain location for these files

"Instead use the installer for this purpose."
Please explain this in more detail.

Check for the files mixxx.cfg and mixxxdb.sqlite on your old computer to identify the correct Application Data folder.

You might have copied the wrong source folder, so check if it actually contains these files. Also check that you copied it to the correct target location.

Instead use the installer for this purpose.

Most executable files have dependencies that need to be installed and registered in Windows. Simply copying the files is not sufficient.

Please understand that I'm not able to cover basic Windows topics here.
