Skip Printing Checks

I dont use Quicken to print checks. How do I skip this step so the reminders to print checks go away!

    Hello @Vincent@PH

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

    May I ask that you please navigate to the top of the Quicken screen and select Tools > Memorized Payee List. On this screen, can you locate one of the payees that you reminded to write a check for? What is the payment method that is listed?

    Are you able to edit the type of transaction at all? Please let me know what you find!

    The trigger to make Quicken want to print checks is found in your account registers. Look in either the Check # or Reference # column(*) for transactions containing the word "Print". Blank it out and save the transactions.
    Similar to what @Quicken_Tyka pointed out for memorized transactions, Scheduled Reminders can also contain a setting to "print a check". Remove the checkmark.
    Generally, before saving a new transaction make sure there's no "Print" in the Check # column.

    Checking accounts have a Check # column. Other account types have an optional Reference # column. If this column does not show in the register then you can add it using the Register columns button.

    @Quicken_Tyka and @UKR, thank you both for your solutions. I had the same question as Vincent@PH and can confirm that removing the word "Print" from the Check# column fixed the issue for me.
