Yes, you can, @Vandal Nation.

 

I’d be more than happy to guide you in installing your QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) software to your laptop.

 

To ensure the software works effectively, you’ll want to check if your laptop meets the system requirements for QBDT 2021. Once verified, here’s how to install QBDT to your laptop:

 

  1. Open your laptop and Install QuickBooks.
  2. Once done, go back to your desktop computer and create a backup copy of your company file.
  3. Copy the backup file to your laptop using a flash drive.
  4. Then restore the file on your laptop.

You can also refer to this article for more details: Move your company files to another computer.

 

In case you run into some issues while installing your software to your laptop, you can refer to this article on how to handle the situation: Fix QuickBooks Desktop install errors.

 

Let me know if there’s anything else I can help you in installing your QBDT software. I’ll be around ready to help you. Keep safe and take care!
