Transferring licenses keys

I am upgrading my 2018 Solidworks student license to a 2019 license. I followed an online tutorial that told me to go through control panel>Solidworks>Change. I went through the process and changed the license key, and everything appeared to follow the tutorial perfectly. However when I went to boot the new Solidworks, it still shows that it is 2018 on the Desktop ICON. I tried searching my computer for a 2019 Solidworks file and the only one that comes up is Solidworks 2018. When I load Solidworks the loading window shows "2018-2019" in the top corner. However when I try and load a file that originated in SW2019 I still get a future version error. Any help with this is much appreciated.
