    Okay - do this:

    1) Open the bank account in Quicken;
    2) Click on the little "Gear Icon" in the upper right of the screen;
    3) Select "Edit account details" from the drop down menu;
    4) Click in the "Account Name" filed and change the name to "Mechanics Bank"
    5) Click "OK"

    That's it!

  • Hi again,

    There is a new user name and password to get into the Mechanics Bank account, and Quicken is not recognizing them; I called Mechanics Bank and they said that there's no reason on their end. I have been able to log in on another computer using the new UN and PW...?

    It sounds like you need to deactivate the account, in Q, from downloading, delete the old bank name, exit & restart Q, and re-activate the account(s) for download.
    When re-activating, be SURE to select LINK (to connect the bank to your Q accounts) rather than ADD.
