Yes settings are in effect.No not automatically accepting downloaded transactions into registers
As per usual the user is at fault. As I said, I have used Quicken for years and this has not happened before. 47 uncategorized transactions and I normally have three to five per month? Yes it has happened before, just do a search for "uncategorized transactions". I think it happened when I upgraded.
They are in my memorized payee list. One or two weeks ago it worked just fine. Why would Quicken not automatically recognize things like Cracker Barrel, Taco Bell, etc. as restaurants? It did in the past.
