    Please provide the year and version of Quicken being used: select Help > About Quicken

    To add a sub-category, press Ctrl + Shift + C, select New Category, choose Sub-category of: and select the parent category from the pull-down list.

    To add a category to a budget, open the budget, select Manage Budget Categories, and check the category.

    Regarding having Quicken start on a specific Home view, select Edit > Preferences..., Startup, select the desired view from the Startup location pull-down menu.

    The budget tracks categories.  Expenses are entered into a register as a transaction, which in turn has a category.

    To add a new category you can use Tools -> Category List (and set things like its tax line).  You can also create categories by just typing in an new name in the category field in a transaction.

    On the "home screen" I believe you are talking about this image:

    I believe this is in fact Quicken Web not the Desktop home screen, and even that seems to be a little out of date since this is what the current Quicken Web looks like:

    If I'm wrong about it, then it is either the Quicken Mac Desktop or some totally fake marketing image.
