Reduce the wasted space on the "Home" pane where I see my consolidated information (3 Merged Votes)

Under the View Bar is the 'Customize' button on its own bar.  There is no way to hide it.
Given that it does take up a whole line with nothing else on it,  as a suggestion, move it to
the line above and to the right, next to the Add View button.

    Reduce the wasted space on the "Home" pane where I see my consolidated information.. I could see 3 rows of widgets in Quicken 2015 and now only 2.5 rows show need to scroll up and down each time ! Have given suggestions in this picture to show how this can easily be improved.

    I agree with this.  This button takes up too much vertical space.  Move it to the menus where it is out of the way.

    Agree, i've had Quicken for more than 20 years and don't need the "customize' button.

    Thanks for reviving this. I agree with the OP. The Customize button wastes vertical space. There is already an Add View button in the row of Home tabs. The Customize View button should be next to it.

    I never actually thought about this one, but now that I have, I totally agree.  Why not add another ubiquitous gear in place of the Add View button and put both Add View and Customize there.

    I concur with RJS. The Customize button should be moved next to the Add View button, to save screen space.
    And I could have sworn that we already had a similar Idea posted here, but I can't find it.
    Programmers, please make this change!

    I could have sworn I've recently seen another discussion of this "wasted space" that has had multiple contributors ... but I can't find it right now ...
    As it stands, it would be nice if the programmers could make the change requested above, plus a few other "wasted white space" suggestions that have been made before.
    You've got my vote.

    No, please! No more gears! I can never remember which one is which as it is. There's room for a button. No need to hide it behind yet another gear.
