Query: Right now we have QuickBooks desktop 2013, and we bought QuickBooks desktop pro 2019. How can I upgrade my software to QuickBooks desktop 2021?
Updating QuickBooks desktop 2013 to the latest release is simple to process either by updating manually or automatically. In case, you switch on Automatic Update, you allow QuickBooks software to download the recent updates automatically. If you want to switch the feature off, we suggest updating QuickBooks manually once a month.
Note: Updating the QuickBooks software to latest release needs a small change to the database. This modification makes the data file mismatched with earlier releases.
