    In Windows, set the file association for .QFX extension files to point to qw.exe which is in the Program files\Quicken folder.

    So simply double-clicking the .QFX file will launch Quicken.

    BOTH of those replies assume that you're running a currently supported Q product (Q2016 or later) and that the QFX file was downloaded from a "Participating Financial Institution" that has a current contract with Quicken, Inc,

    Q will refuse to import any QFX file that doesn't satisfy both of those conditions.

    I'm aware of both options but wasn't sure what the once called "file association" was called.  Thanks,  splasher
