transfer old data to new computer using Quicken 2020

I have Quicken 2012 and just downloaded Quicken 2020 on my laptop. How do I transfer old data to new computer via thumb drive?

    Just copy the .qdf file.  It should be under Documents in a Quicken folder.  Actually just copy the whole Quicken folder.  Then you should get any other data files and backup files.  

    I'm staying on Quicken 2013 Premier for Windows.

    Other way would be to make a Quicken Backup to the thumbdrive and then do a Quicken Restore on the new computer, making sure that you have it put in the folder where you want it.
    A folder named Quicken under Documents is the normal location.
