FAQ: Quicken Window Sizing Problems (main window)

edited December 2018 in FAQs
There is a bug in Quicken that has been around since at least Quicken 2012.
(Note this information is also on my website because I'm not sure I can maintain it here:
http://www.quicknperlwiz.com/quickensizingproblems.html )

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 2017 it has lead to  even more problems.
Note
not only is Quicken 2017 continuing to use the main display for the
sizing of the main windows when it shouldn't, 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.image

Below is an example of Quicken 2017 not getting the
position right when the task bar is on the left.  Other examples is that
in some cases Quicken will size its main windows so that it covers the
task bar.

    A workaround for the first problem is to make the display that Quicken is on, the primary/main display.
    Right
    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
