Updating Category for All Transactions for a Payee

This was in the R25.10 release notes (Feb 2020). Anybody know how to do this?

Improved: When you add a category to a transaction, Quicken now gives you the option to update past transactions for the same payee.

I recently added a new category called, "Utilities:Streaming Media Services" and I want to update all of my previous Spotify payee transactions from the category, "Entertainment" to the new category I created.

    I am still on 2017 so it may not apply
    I just rt click the payee in any transaction then click "Payments made to [payee]"
    Then set filters, select all transactions I want to change and rt click. Options include recategorizing. I can also delete, rename payee, retag, or edit memo

    I believe that Find&Replace also existed in QW2017.
    Don't knock it until you've tried it.
