Transfer Mozilla Thunderbird from Windows 7 to Windows 11.

Bericht door Up2you2 »

I have a 91.6.0 932-bit version of Mozilla Thunderbird on my Windows 7 laptop, I want to transfer that in keeping, with all the present folders in it, to a Windows 11 64 bit PC.

I would be most grateful, if someone could let me know the various stages I have to go through please.

Hello,

See https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/pr ... -a-profile about creating a backup of your Thunderbird profile, copy this to your new computer and restore it there.

Glad it worked out, but did the knowledge base article nirwana referred to not provide the needed details?

Another good article would have been https://support.mozilla.org/kb/moving-t ... w-computer.
