2017 Quicken...revert transaction downloads to YES

Karen Member ✭✭
edited May 2017 in Investing (Windows)
When I first downloaded Quicken 2017, my account list was defaulted to "transaction download" YES. I stupidly changed it to NO. I want it back to yes, but when I click "activate downloads" for any of the accounts, it wants the name of the account and balances, but won't let me choose an existing account. It says....that name is already in use. I can't find where I can revert to original default. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    It would help if you can tell us if you are using QWin or QMac.

    sorry...windows 10.  And I was able to change one account, because somehow a window came up and gave me the option of changing.  But still need to change another two accounts.

    Found my answer....Choose Edit menu > Preferences. In the left pane, select Downloaded Transactions. 
    In the right pane, check or uncheck Automatically add to banking registers and Automatically add to investment transaction lists. 
    Click OK.
