    To close one of those windows select Alt+F4.

    And note that if the dialogs are too big for your screen you are using a Windows scaling and/or use Large Fonts combination that is outside of what Quicken Windows was designed for.
    Here are the requirements:


    These are at 100% Windows scaling.
    If you are using a Windows scaling other than 100% you have to do a bit of math to see what the requirements are.

    At 125% you would multiple the numbers above by 1.25 to see the minimum resolution your screen has to be running at to fit.
    1024 * 1.25 = 1280, 768 * 1.25 = 960.
    Large fonts: 1280 * 12.5 = 1600, 1024 * 1.25 = 1280
