Upgrading to Visual Studio 2013 from VS 2012

I have been running an application I developed in VS 2012.

I opened VS 2013 and ran the VS 2012 application from the 2012 Projects folder. The app ran without error.

Now I wish to import the application into VS 2013 and eventually uninstall VS 2012.

What guidance is available?

Thanks,

You can already uninstall VS 2012. The only thing you have to do to fully benefit from VS2013 is to change your targeted platform to 4.5.1

The recent list on VS2013 is pointing to the VS2012 Projects folder. Will I need to move the solution files to the VS2013 Projects folder?

I do not understand.  The folder in the Solution files list of 2013 is the VS2012 Projects folder.

If I uninstall VS2012, does the VS2012 Projects folder get deleted?

uninstalling never deletes files that belongs to users. your projects and all their files belongs to you.

anyway it is never a good idea to save in the default location. almost everybody I know creates a folder like Dev or Projects or ...

Plus it is better if you have source control like the free http://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/products/visual-studio-online-overview-vs.aspx

Yes, I have a Projects folder for VS2012 and another Projects folder for VS 2012.

Just to be safe, I will copy the solution files in Projects 2012 to Projects 2013.

This would accomplish a solution import from VS2012 to VS2013.

Thanks for the advice and for the source control app.
