How do I Register Quicken for Windows?

Learn how to register your Quicken for Windows software.

If you own Quicken 2014 for Windows or later

Beginning with Quicken 2014, Quicken will rely on the Intuit ID for maintaining product registration in addition to managing your product purchases, online portfolio and/or mobile sync account. If you purchased any Intuit product (Quicken, Quicken Essentials Mac, Turbo Tax, QuickBooks, etc.) in the past, or have logged into the Quicken Community online, you most likely already have an Intuit ID.

You can use this Intuit ID when registering your Quicken program by selecting the option "I already have an Intuit ID".

If you are new to Intuit products/services, you choose to Create an Intuit ID.

For more information on the Intuit ID, please see What Is The Intuit ID.
