Moving Quickbooks To A New Computer

Trying to move Quickbooks Desktop 2020 to a new computer. When I go to File -> Utilities, I do not see the option for "Move Quickbooks to another computer". I am the only user for this quickbooks and am the admin user. 


What can I do to move Quickbooks Desktop 2020 to a new computer if this does not work?

You can migrate your file manually.

1. Open your company file on your old machine and create the backup file (*.qbb)

2. Install QB on your new machine

3. Restore the backup file on the your new machine.
