I don’t use MacBook migration tool because I want to install everything from a clean environment. If you need to manually migrate from old notebook, you can use Air Drop to copy files manually.
Some other settings that cannot be found from menu, then you should go to Finder -> Preferences.
“Your Username” and “MacBook Pro”
- Show all filename extensions
- When performing a search: Search the Current Folder
- Keep folders on top: in windows when sorting by name
