Migrating data: meaning of "In the file browser"

I'm trying to migrate my 1Password v6 vault, using a USB drive, from an old Mac to a new one. Reading the "Move your data with a USB flash drive" instructions on the website, step 3 is "Select the vault you want to migrate, then choose Folder from the drop-down menu on the right." I've done that. However, I'm stuck on step 4: "In the file browser, navigate to the USB flash drive, then click Open."

The problem is, I don't understand "In the file browser" and I haven't been able to navigate. Can you help me, please?

1Password Version: 6
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: macOS 10.13.6

    Hi @SandyMacduff!

    This is a screenshot of the file browser:

    It will appear once you choose the Folder option, so you can select the location of the data you are migrating.

  • And how to copy from 1password 7 to the 1password online app (browser)?
