How do I perform a One Step Update in Quicken?

There are three ways to access One Step Update.

  1. From your Account bar or Toolbar.
  2. From the Tools menu.

  3. From your account's register (if you want to update one account by itself).

Once you access your One Step Update Settings, you'll be able to select which accounts you'd like to update.

Depending on how you manage your financial institution passwords, you may be asked for your financial institution's password or the password for your Quicken Password Vault.
