Home Quicken for Windows Errors and Troubleshooting (Windows)

Some Quicken windows are canted to the right and cannot be moved

Some can be moved but still aren't fully "viewable". Am I the only one having this problem? Do I have a setting wrong? See example. Even the "REPORT" window sometimes can't be fully viewed. In this case I couldn't get to the SEND button.  >:)

    What size monitor do you have and what are your screen resolution settings? Are you using a small-screen tablet computer?

    Font size problems? Display issues? (Windows)

    Please try this:

    • Close Quicken !!! (This process won't work while Quicken is running!)
    • Check the Compatibility tab settings in your Quicken Desktop program icon:
    • In the Windows Start Menu right-click the Quicken icon. Select "Open File Location". This brings up a Windows File Explorer window. Right-click the highlighted Quicken shortcut line item.
      or
    • Go to the traditional Windows Desktop and right-click the Quicken program icon.
    • Now click Properties.
    • Select the Compatibility tab.
    • Uncheck all settings.
    • Windows 7, 8.1: Check "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings". 
      Windows 10:  Check "Override high DPI scaling behavior. Scaling performed by:" and select "Application"  (also try the other available options!)
    • Be sure to uncheck the "Run this program in compatibility mode for [older Windows version]" setting.
    • Click the "Change settings for all users" button.
    • Click Apply and exit.
    • Now start Quicken and see if that makes a difference.

    Some additional tuning suggestions:

    • Unless absolutely required, try not to use "View / Use large fonts"
    • Try setting the bank account registers to use a different font style or size: in Edit / Preferences / Register click the Fonts button and try different fonts.
    • Try adjusting the bank account registers' row height: in Edit / Preferences / Register choose among the available Row Height choices: Compact, Comfortable or Standard
    • If all else fails, try changing Windows Control Panel / Display options for "Make text and other items … smaller or larger" to use a different scaling level.

    I tweaked compatibility, scaling, etc. Sch Txns still reacts the same way. I can move the window to align it properly. When I close it and reopen it comes back to the same setting. Thanks for the ideas!

    You probably realize Windows are positioned based on a pixel coordinate for the top left corner. It's all relative. Windows canted to the right aren't using the correct setting.
    Maybe this will help you.Greg_the_Geek said:

    That doesn't help. Why is your resolution 1024 X 768 and not 1200 X 900? Most LCD screens only look sharp at their native resolutions.

    You still haven't answered my question. Go to Settings --> System --> and post the percentage is Scale and layout set to.
