How do I move my 2012 Quicken Account info to my Google Account?

Microsoft is closing all accounts (not using their features), and I must move my old Google accounts, even though I bought my Window Computer, and used Google accounts. They are trying to force me to use their products.

    You can migrate your Quicken 2012 data to a current version of Quicken without difficulty. Please see this discussion

    Unless I misunderstand your issue, this has nothing to do with Google or Microsoft accounts.

    sorry - but I have no idea what any of this means ?  What are you talking about - I must move my old Google accounts ?
    Are you talking about moving some Quicken backup files from MS OneDrive to Google Drive or what ?

    If I understand you correctly it should be as easy as moving all your *.QDF and *.QDF-Backup files to the new location and open the *.QDF from there.

    Note it is actually suggested that the *.QDF files that you open in Quicken be in Documents\Quicken (which shouldn't be in either OneDrive or Google Drive), and then you would store your backup files where they will get backed up like in a Google Drive folder.
