Hello, I'm Larry and had a computer fail so I changed to Quickbooks online, thankfully I have two backups available, one on a a external harddrive and on a flashdrive. The video tutorial in my new online won't work and there isn't a file menu available yet on my screen. Any suggestions?

I want to ensure your concern about your files gets taken care of. However, I have to ask for some details about the issue.
May I know if you’ve imported your file from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online? And where have you encountered this issue? Is it in QBO or QBDT? This way, I can provide you with the best resolution.
I'd appreciate any additional details you can provide. I’m looking forward to your reply. Have a great rest of the day.
