Best download version - compatible with my Quicken 2013 files

I am obtaining a new laptop, since the one I have is very old - the new one has no CD drive. I have used (and love) Quicken 2013. I do not have investments or any such accounts - just regular payments, checking, and expense or income categories. Which current version of Quicken is best for the need I described, and would be one with which I could use the backup of my current Quicken 2013 files? I want to keep it just as it is.

    All versions - even the current subscription version - are "downloaded" to your computer as Quicken isn't a "cloud" based product.
    The last non-subscription version was 2017 and it will work fine with your 2013 data base.
    But why not simply continue using the 2013 product if it fills your needs?

    The 2013 version is on my old computer. Is there a way to transfer the entire program to the new computer? (I have no disc drive on the new one.)

    Thank you. The new computer arrives this week. I am hoping that this link will make me have no trouble installing the programme, and that I can easily move my data. I greatly appreciate the link. (It wasn't until after the fact that I realised I never did have the disc for Quicken 2013 - I had downloaded it from Amazon, when my much older version was discontinued.)
