How to correct home page from changing

I just changed from Windows 7 to 10. I like when my home page shows the ALERTS right on top of BILL & INCOME REMINDERS. It appears that way on booting up. Once I leave the home page and go back to it, the reminders are to the side of the alerts and I do not see the entire line. If I go to view and turn on full screen and then go back and turn off full screen, the home page goes back to the way It should be. Any advice?

    Hello @Joe

    Thank you for your response and providing that additional information, although I apologize that you have not yet received a follow-up response.

    May I ask, is this behavior still happening with the latest R24.14 release for Quicken Windows 2020 (subscription)?

    If so, and you haven't already, I would recommend temporarily removing the Alerts option from the Home screen view.

    Once removed, close and re-open Quicken, then re-add the Alerts view back to the Home page and let us know if this helps to resolve the display issue with the Alerts and Reminders or if issues persist.

    Thank you,

    Yes the update does seem to correct the problem that I was having with the home page changing its format. However, since the update, when I do a backup to my external harddrive, the entire display seems to go black, but then I get the pop up message that the backup was successful. The black display is that normal?
