I have QuickBooks installed on my desktop and would also like to have it on my laptop. What is the easiest way to accomplish this?
Thanks for your Question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to assisting you.

Which version of Quickbooks are you using?

Pro 2013

Thanks Genia.

First, you would install Quickbooks on your Laptop.

When you are finished using it on the desktop for the day and want to continue using it on the Laptop, you make a backup on your Desktop, of your company file.

Copy this backup file to a USB Memory stick, then put the memory stick in the Laptop.

You then restore the Backup file in Quickbooks on the Laptop, and continue using the data on the Laptop.

When you want to use the Desktop again, you make a backup on the Laptop, copy this to the desktop, then restore it in Quickbooks on the desktop.

This is the process you will need to follow, in order to use it on both computers.

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

The same way you did on the Desktop.

If you used a disk, install it from that disk.

Else if you downloaded it, go to

Sign into your account (top right) and download and install it again.
