    hi. i just recently got a new laptop because my old one had its screen broke but i need help with something.
    since i made my game on my old laptop i don't know how to transport it on my new laptop. i tried to send the game file from my old laptop to my new one with bluetooth but it said its gonna take 11 hrs to transfer it. is there a faster way to do it.

    USB-memory stick / external HDD / SSD
    Or if have DVD burner, burn DVD.
    Or setup shared local folder, to access via router, your other machine and copy files.
    Or Upload to some online file store service (Depends on file size and network speed)

    - why is this in the documentation section?
    - why don't you use external version control?

    Otherwise:
    - buy an external drive case
    - take out the HDD/SDD from the old laptop
    - put it into the case
    - plug in the new laptop

    You could use Unity Collaborate to "share" the Project and then download it on on the new laptop.
    For more information on Unity Collaborate, see https://docs.unity3d.com/Manual/UnityCollaborate.html

    I have multiple machines that I use when I am out and about this allows me to keep the project current on all the machines.
