Now press the letter, I , to open the,  , Import / Export settings submenu,  or navigate to, Import / Export settings submenu,  and press enter.
Note:  You have 4 options here Import..., Export..., Restore... and Migrate...
If you want to Migrate settings from an earlier version press enter on Migrate and a dialogue will open saying the following,
Migrate User Settings dialog
An older version of JAWS was detected with custom user settings. Do you want to migrate settings to the current JAWS?

Highlight the version of Jaws you want to migrate the settings from and tab to, Yes, and press the spacebar and follow the prompts.
Stay safe & take care.  Mike.
Just once, I want a username and password prompt to say:  "Close Enough!"

Subject: Merging settings

Hi all

I was working with someone yesterday who did her upgrade to Jaws 2022 but did not realise there was the option to merge settings. I have looked around as I was sure there must be an easy way to do it after the effect but I can’t find how to do it. Can someone advise me please as it would be faster than trying to go through and find all her settings again?
