  • Show Tabs

    You can choose to display, or not display, the row of tabs that runs across the top of the Quicken window (the Home tab, the Spending tab, and so on). If you choose not to show the tabs, you can use menu commands to go to the various areas in Quicken.

    Instead of removing the entire row of tabs, you can select individual tabs to show or hide. To do so, choose View menu > Tabs to show

  • Show Account Bar
    • When this box is checked, Quicken displays the Account Bar, which makes it easy to switch between your various accounts.
    • To display the Account Bar on the left or right side of the screen, choose On Left or On Right.
    • To display cents in the balances of your accounts, choose Show cents in Account Bar balances.
    • To show or hide the balances of your accounts entirely, right-click the Account Bar and choose Show amounts or Hide amounts.
