Save as option does not appear as a option under file menu, that I can transfer 2015 turbo tax files to new computer

Purchased 2016 Turbo Tax and we now have new computer. All our 2011 to 2015 tax info are on our old computer and I wish to move these to new computer. The "save as" option does not appear under the file menu - so how can this be accomplished and move the files onto a flash drive and then my new computer?

TurboTax CD/Download file extensions are *.TT, plus the tax year. For example, your 2014 files will all be named something.TT14 and your 2013 files will be something.TT13.

1. Find all of these files on your old computer. TurboTax CD/Download typically saves your TurboTax files to your Documents folder in folder named with the applicable tax year.

2. Plug you flash drive into your old computer

3. From Windows explorer, drag or copy all your *.TT* files from your old computer to your flash drive

4. Plug your flash drive into your new computer and transfer the files to your new computer

Note: If you want to open these prior year files on your new computer, you'll need to install TurboTax CD/Download on your new computer for those particular tax years. Those older files won't open in TurboTax for tax year 2016.
