    @Jane Frattini As Tyka notes, deleting a security you owned in the past would mess up your investment history, so Quicken prevents you from doing so -- you actually cannot delete a security which has been used in any transaction.

    Hiding a security in lists is a longstanding wish from users expressed in this Idea thread which has been marked as officially Planned by the development team. We just don't know how soon it will be coming.

    In the meantime, if the primary goal is to not see securities you no longer hold in your list, you might use an approach a number of us use: renaming the no-longer-needed securities with a prefix like "z" (e.g. "z-ABC Fund") so they are at the bottom of the list and basically stay out of your way, without impacting your investment history.

    Hello @Jane Frattini

    Thank you for taking the time to visit the Community to report this issue although, I apologize that you have not received a response.

    At this time, Quicken for Mac does not offer the option to hide a capability. It has been confirmed that this feature will be added in a future update, however, I do not have an ETA to provide.

    A security can be deleted by going to Window > Securities, however, this will impact previous transaction history. Is there a specific reason you are looking to hide the security? We might be able to come up with a workaround to get you what you are needing.
