Used to be able to vertically size the "Downloaded Transactions" window.

with the mouse. So I could see 1 or 2 transactions in the register. This is no longer available, and the Help files are outdated. Now, there is just the caret ^ to turn off the window (NOT plus/minus). My register window does not have room to show the "current, downloaded" transx, making it impossible to add a memo or tag or edit the transx at all until all transx are done.

Background: Desktop PC, Windows set at 175% text so I can read it.
The assumptions here seem to be that Quicken is perfect. I imagine under the hood is spaghetti code. Best practices for display technology should not be effected by how I size the text in Windows. But that's opinion. How about bringing back vertical sizing for the "Downloaded Transactions" window. I can scroll "Accept Transactions" for new transactions so I don't need 7 static lines there.

    The vertical sizing of the Downloaded Transactions tab on the non investment accounts is still there (it has never been there on the investment accounts).

    But it seems you can't reduce it to less than 5 1/2 transaction lines.
    The control to change the size isn't in a place you would expect.
    With the Downloaded Transactions tab expanded click and drag here:

    Thanks Chris for helping with the description of these bugs.
    1) Vertical sizing is inconsistent throughout Quicken.
    2) Control for sizing is mysteriously placed.
    3) Where it is available, sizing is limited.
    4) Help files hopelessly out of date.
    5) Controls for the "Download Transactions" window Disappear. See screenshot.
    I think bad coding and too much of it make simple changes (like these 5) impossible to address.
