Moving To Another Computer

Hello all, I just bought a new system, (a Workstation to be exact) on my old machine i have a bunch of custom shaders with all the assets coming from a specific folder. How can is transfer all my shaders that are well categorised in cinema 4D to the new machine? so that they show up in the same way?
One thing you could do is create a preset folder in the Content Browser and drag all of your shaders into it. That will contain a *.lib4D file that you can then copy over to your new computer. You can find the file by opening Preferences, clicking the "open preferences folder" button at the bottom of the dialogue, and navigating to library>browser. Copy it to the same location on your new machine.
