Home Quicken for Windows Installing and Updating (Windows)

How do I remove the renewal banners?

I chose NOT to renew Quicken because I don't use any of the extra features that come with it. Now, I have a yellow banner across the top and wide side banner on the right side of the screen. How do I remove these?

    I wish. They didn't appear until after expiration. If I split the windows screen, the side banner blocks half of the register. They take up too much of the screen. It is as if the only way to remove them is to renew. That isn't going to happen. Quicken should give you a way to hide them and a way to renew, if & when, you change your mind.
    I hate when companies try to force you to do something that you don't want to do. I'll give them a couple more weeks before I make a permanent resolution to this situation.

    This started with subscription US Quicken when it came out in Fall 2017, nobody saw it until a year later when the first of the expirations started to happen.  We are into our 18th month of the nag banner, a couple of weeks is not going to change Quicken, Inc's mind.  I hate to say it, I think it is here to stay, whether I like it or not.

    I can't see paying $50 USD for me to get the fixes for their bugs. I am writing my own version in excel. Once debugged, well you know.That's my permanent solution.

    And this is why I will not move from Q 2017 to the subscription version, after being a Quicken user for well over 20 years.

    I am with everyone else. Having used Quicken Home and Business since 1989 when it was on 3 floppy disks and started in DOS I refuse to "upgrade" to a new version that forces me to renew every year. (Removed-Disruptive)
