    I have Fetch installed with all my shortcuts on my laptop but recently got a new computer. How can I install and import my shortcuts onto the new computer? Please advise... Help needed.

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    When you set up your new computer did you have it copy your existing program settings from the old computer? That would take care of copying the shortcuts.

    Otherwise you should check out this help topic on moving shortcuts:

    I'm in a similar situation, except that I'll have to find my shortcuts on a backup drive in wherever Fetch keeps them in the Library or elsewhere (long story). Can you tell me where I can find them for Fetch 5.5? Thanks very much in advance for any info.

    Fetch Shortcuts are stored in a file named com.fetchsoftworks.Fetch.Shortcuts.plist . That file can be found in the Preferences folder inside the Library folder in your home folder. On 10.7 and later the Library folder is hidden by default. You can open it by holding down the Option key and choosing "Library" from the Go menu. Alternatively, you can choose Go to Folder… from the Go menu and enter:

    ~/Library

    Thanks,
