First of all I need explanations in plain language if possible as my computing skills are limited.

I have  a Windows 10 laptop with about 25,000 photos organized in Albums in PSE2013 but I have just bought a new laptop and I am planning to install PSE2022. I want to make sure I can do this without losing all the captions , people recognition and clearly the albums in which the photos are organized. I remember reading some where that it was necessary first to save metadata to file but when I do this from the file menu it is using a lot of memory of which I am running short.

Is that necessary and what is the best way to tranfer/copy from one laptop to the other? Last time when moving from version PSE10 to 13 I tried using the Back up catalog/ Restore catalog facility but it didn't work.
