1. Open up Lightroom on the computer that has all your presets.
2. Open "Preferences"
3. In the Preferences window, locate and click the Presets tab, then click "Show Lightroom Presets Folder"
4. Locate the Develop Presets folder and in that folder you should see all your presets
You can copy all your presets and load them on your new computer > in Lightroom > in the Develop Presets folder. You can find that folder by following the steps 1-4. Hope that helps!

With all the Cloud technology behind Creative 'CLOUD' this is the best way to sync between multiple computers on the same account? Disappointed.

Yes- as users we often think of functions that would benefit us. (This is a User-to-user forum)

But know that at the moment the "Creative Cloud" is merely Adobe's method of registering and updating software. The "Cloud" for Lightroom only basically allows syncing photos between one computer and a 'mobile' device- not two computers.
Copying presets, etc, still requires copy&paste methods as per Rohit above. Many users also use Dropbox (or similar) to make their presets available anywhere.

People tend to forget that Lightroom is designed as a single-user, single-computer management system.
Working on multiple computers requires you to jump through some hoops.
But know that at the moment the "Creative Cloud" is merely Adobe's method of registering and updating software.
I don't agree. Creative Cloud is – and 6 months later didn't change a lot – more than registering and updating. I think of colors (cloud library), smart objects (cloud library), fonts, stock images… Did i forgot anything?
Syncing Lightroom settings wouldn't be hard to realise, because there are some files to be copied. It's possible doing it manually, why not automatically?
Further to that link: there are other user configuration / support files too, relevant to LR.
These are found under "CameraRaw" in the same parent location, as the "Lightroom" folder mentioned.
One workable approach is to sync the contents of both of these folders on an ongoing basis, via e.g. Dropbox (using the locally installed Dropbox app, suitably configured).
There is no need to involve Adobe CC storage in particular.
It is really bad that adobe has not yet introduced to sync presets. There are all kinds of presets that are integral part of the workflow and you tend to create new ones quite often especially when you are building your workflow.
rpandita Copying and pasting is a really sucky and hackey way of doing the going forward, I hope Adobe will introduce this feature on priority. This post is from 2015 today is 2018 and adobe still hasn't introduced this feature..that is a shame.
