Inserting *.dat file in new client

by Jay   Last Updated August 13, 2019 20:27 PM

I'm running out of ideas and I'm hoping to get some help. My computer crashed but I have the wallet.dat file on a thumb drive. I've downloaded and synced v0.18.1 but don't see any way to add the .dat file within the GUI. Do I have to use the command prompts? If so, the proper procedure would be very helpful. Thanks to anyone who can help.
