Home Quicken for Mac Product Ideas - Quicken for Mac Product Enhancements (Mac)

Don't change Home Page when Open in New Window or Double Click Account (14 Legacy Votes)

jnellisonjnellison Member
In previous versions, when you double clicked on an account from the Home window, the selected account opened in a new window and the Home window didn't change. Now, the Home window also displays the "selected" account. Even a right click with "Open in new window" switches the Home window. I liked the old behavior better because I usually have a report or account there that I want to continue using. The new version requires more clicks to complete a task because I have to reopen my report. The clicks add up quickly during a session.

    This is my #1 annoyance in Quicken for Mac. I like the overall user interface design of QMac but then I keep stumbling over this defect. Seems like a violation of user interface guidelines.

    I hope it gets fixed soon.

    Still desirable.

    This is a big annoyance for me. I would love it if the main Quicken window would stay where it’s at when right-clicking an account in the sidebar and selecting “open in new window”.
