How to make QDF-backup file open with Quicken Windows
I do not download transactions so was using Quicken 2016 but had to go to subscription 2019 when got new Win10 desktop at work and Win 10 laptop for home and travel. Use USB drive to backup on one last used and then restore on the other to keep them synced. Works fine but in setting up on laptop, the QDF-backkup files wanted to use Windows Media Player.USB backup has all the files in red and white Quicken files. Put the same drive in the lap top and all Blue and white Word files (deleted Windows media player to see if would work. Have uninstalled and installed several times. Made the QDF-backup file "open with" spot blank in hope would re-populate with Quicken Window but no luck. Tried to talk to quicken support once and chat once, wasted about two hours and go nowhere. When left click on a file have choice of "change app" to open with or right click file and click "open with" both give be two options of keeping the app that is listed or to choose a new one in the Microsoft App Store. All the other files, QDB, QDF, QDT, QFX, QIF, AND QWMOD ("Choose default apps by file type) all open with Quicken Windows. The .QDF-backup file on the desktop also opens with Quciken Windows but can not change the lap top. Any suggestions on what to do?
