Hi there @Eleanor B.1, thanks for reaching out to us.

 

You can simply install and run the desktop app on your new computer, and it'll sync your active content. 

 

Please note though that if you're on a Basic account, you'll have to make sure that you've got less than three devices already connected to proceed. 

 

Hope this helps!
