FAQ: Quicken Window Sizing Problems (main window)

edited December 2020 in FAQ'S (Windows)
There is a bug in Quicken that has been around since at least Quicken 2012.

If you are using multiple displays and Quicken is in maximized mode Quicken will size the main Quicken window based on the resolution of the main display even if Quicken is on a different display.

Most of the time applications leave the sizing of the main display to Windows, but Quicken doesn't. This leads to the above problem.  But in Quicken it has lead to even more problems.

Not only is Quicken continuing to use the main display for the sizing of the main windows when it shouldn't, but it is also not taking other configurations into account.

In general, depending on the resolutions of the display Quicken is on, and the main display, Quicken can look messed up in different ways, but below is an example.

    A workaround for the first problem is to make the display that Quicken is on, the primary/main display.
    click Desktop -> Screen Resolution, click display where you are
    going to display Quicken, and select Make this my main display ->
    OK.  (Or of course you could also run in non maximized mode).

    There isn't a workaround for the second problem, which is only in Quicken 2017
