I am transferring files from my old macbook to iMac. i am concerned that full migration will replace my settings in my new iMac. I just need to migrate old files and apps.  In using migration assistant, How do I select specific applications or files? How do I know what is included in "applications" and "other files..." if I choose these 2 items as they do not have disclosure triangles like "users" and "settings"

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)
