Hi, I am currently running Quickbooks Desktop for Mac 2021 on Catalina. I have a message from QB saying "A new version of Quickbooks is ready to install! Quickbooks 220.127.116.118 has been downloaded and is ready to use! Would you like to install it and relaunch Quickbooks now?"
1. If I install the above as it asks, will it work with my current operating system, Catalina?
2. If I install the above as it asks, can I upgrade my Mac to a higher operating system, such as Monterey 12.1?
