Thanks for updating us, @satC. I'm here to help you out with your payroll question.
Here's the working link for an overview on Desktop Payroll: QuickBooks Desktop Payroll Service
In terms of exporting the QBO Payroll data to Desktop Payroll, the export process doesn't include payroll data when it's transferred to the file. Since every business is a little different and has its own requirements, I recommend checking out our Apps Marketplace to look for a third-party solution that may suit your needs.

Here's how to import your employee lists:
After importing your employee list, you can start entering your YTD information. You can check out these helpful articles on how to do this.
