Using a backup file

I'd like to know please how to use a backup file in Quicken for Mac 2017 ver 4.8.4

I take regular back ups "File/Save a backup"

It's been bugging me for some time as to how I can launch Quicken (I've got the "Q17" in my Dock" with a back up file of my choice.

Thanks, QuickPeter

btw for those that gave me help and advice a couple of months ago, please note that I'm still plugging away at resolving what I thought was a fault in the "Today's Balance" in one of my savings accounts. Changes to the balance did not seem to be being reflected in "Net Worth" at the bottom left of the main screen.

    Hello Quickpeter,

    Sorry, you haven't received a response.

    The steps to open a backup file are listed at:
    https://www.quicken.com/support/how-backup-or-restore-your-quicken-data

    Quicken will need to open to select the option to restore a back up from the file menu.

    Alternately, if you have located a backup file you can double click on the backup file to restore it.

    Restoring a backup file will open a new file for that data and will not overwrite any existing data file.

    Hope this helps!
