Add Personalized Budget Categories

I would like to be able to change the names of our budget categories or else this purchase is a total waste. Is this an option in Quicken for Mac? Example instead of Amusement, I need a category called Golf. Thank you!

    From main Quicken home menu, click "window" from upper browser bar, then "catgories" then edit using lower left controls

    The categories available for budgeting must be previously created in your Q data file.

    To create new categories, do TOOLS, Category List and then click "New Category" in the upper right of the Category List.

    Thank you so much. It wasn't intuitive for me to check the window menu and I had exhausted all my options in the budget window!

    There is no TOOLS menu in the Mac version ;-)
