Moving scheduled jobs to different PC

Hello,
I have a windows 10 pc acting as a server where I have 30-40 jobs scheduled to run throughout the week at different times on windows task scheduler.

All I want to do is move this list of jobs from one pc to another pc (server). Is there a way where I can avoid manually creating those jobs? Can I just copy/paste some system/config files from the old pc, so that the task scheduler is populated automatically on the new pc?

All the settings and triggers associated with those jobs should also be copied over.

    Task Scheduler has an Export and Import functionality.
    You may open it and right click on tasks which you want to move and click Export and save it.
    Then copy it in a new system and open the Task Scheduler and at the top click on Action and then Import Task... and import them.
    You may use Export-ScheduledTask command in the PowerShell too.
    Have a look at:
