  • What files/libraries do I need to copy over to my new iMac? I bought Fetch online and do not have the disk.

    Thank you!

    To install Fetch on a new Macintosh, you can just download a new copy of Fetch from our website to your new Mac, and then enter your serial number information into the new copy.

    You can download the current version of Fetch from our home page:

    If you do not know your serial number information, send an email to
    and we can look it up for you.

    If you want to move your shortcuts from your old Mac to a new Mac, please see the "Moving shortcuts to another Macintosh" topic in Fetch Help, or you can read it on the web at this address:

    Please let us know if you have further questions.

    That "little file" with links to your website is the shortcuts file. As Scott mentioned, you can read about its location here:
