Transfer MT to a new computer?

Recommended Posts

I purchased a new computer, and want to get MT on it.  Can I use a flash memory stick to transfer my current setup and settings, or do

I have to do a fresh download on the new computer and start from scratch?

1. Do a fresh download and install on a new computer.

2. In the Dashboard, on the old computer, use the File - Export/Backup option to create an export file. Can include data if you want.

3. Copy that file on a flash drive

4. Run the new computer's install. Log in with same login as on old computer. Put the flash drive into the new computer. Do File - Import/Restore and point it to the flash drive's file.

In order to put a click start icon on the desktop with QT, it was called "stocks application".  I see with MT a little bull symbol with MT next to it.

It is called application.  Is this what will put the icon on the desktop to start it up by clicking on it?

You can rename that to anything you want. There should be a "rename" option in right click menu. Or "Properties" and then you can name it in there.
