Just copy your data file from wherever you have saved it to the second 
computer and then File -> Open from within GC.

It is probably a good idea to have the same version of GC on both computers, 
preferably 2.2.9, unless you need to be on the bleeding edge of the testing, 
unstable 2.3.x series....

If it helps you to conceptualise this process, how would you move a word 
processor document to the new PC?  Use the same process for GC, as the 
accounts data is a single file.
