Sorry if this is a dumb question..   But it has been years since I installed Logos.. 

I am about to get a new laptop.. 

Do I just install Logos on my new laptop and then login to my account and it will download everything?

Can I have Logos running on both my old laptop and my new one?

What about all the Personal books I have?  Will they all Download or do I need to do something special to get all my Personal books over to my new laptop?

Anything else?

Thanks!

Yes, except see below on Personal Books.

Certainly.

If you took the extra step to upload your personal books to Logos' servers they will download. If not, you can upload them before you do the Logos install (this is probably a good idea if you will be running Logos on two computers). You should see the upload option on the edit screen.

It might be possible just to copy the contents of C:\Users\{user name}\AppData\Local\Logos\Documents\{string}\PersonalBooks from your existing installation to the same folder in your new installation, but I am not sure. Someone else may have a sure word on that.

It is convenient to do this, but they they cannot be deleted as easily (you have to hide them), so only do it for the ones you want to retain. For the others, you can use the Command scan folder-name, where folder-name contains your *.lbspbb files from the Logos/Verbum Resources folder.
