    What files do I need to bring over to my new computer so that I have all of the shortcuts and history? Thanks.

    When you set up your new Mac you'll be asked if you want to bring information over from another computer. If you say yes, your Fetch settings will be transferred. You can also do that later by running the Migration Assistant application in the Utilities folder.

    To copy your Fetch settings over manually you want to copy the com.fetchsoftworks.Fetch.plist and com.fetchsoftworks.Fetch.Shortcuts.plist files from the Preferences folder inside your Library folder. You'll also want to bring over your login keychain, found in the Keychains folder inside your Library folder.
