Overview

Some Quicken users with high resolution monitors experience display problems (distortion, odd graphics, etc.).

Before you begin 

The issue could simply be caused by a scaling setting. Please review this article first before attempting to use the workaround provided below. Also note, if you do not have QW.exe.Manifest or FixQuickenHiRes on your system, the steps listed below will not resolve your issue. 

To resolve this issue:

Delete QW.exe.Manifest from your Quicken Program Files folder. 

You can also remove FixQuickenHiRes from your computer.

Important: If you use PreferExternalManifest for programs other than Quicken, you won't want to use the RemoveFix process, as this will update the settings for those other programs as well.

To remove FixQuickenHiRes, right-click RemoveFixQuickenHiRes then select Save Link As.... Save the file. Double-click on the RemoveFixQuickenHiRes.reg file.
