    The right-click menu is called the context menu because what appears in the menu depends on where you are when you click. Where are you right-clicking?

    You are hitting the default Windows menu, which normally is overridden by Quicken's menu.
    I tried to make the default Windows menu and this is the only way I could get it to come up.

    If I clicked on the one of the pulldown button for the payee (same with category) with that menu up if I then right click on the transaction payee I can get the default Windows menu.


    At this point if I selected Copy it would copy the text "Interest" to the clipboard.

    So, to avoid this default Windows menu make sure the you don't have any of those pulldown menus open.

    I can get that menu in almost any text box in Quicken. Try the 3 different search/find/filter boxes, transaction notes, security details, etc. The question is where @Sherrie Buckridge was clicking and what she was expecting to see. Most likely is simply clicking in the wrong place.

    Good point, what I was going off of is the fact that "go to matching transfer" was mentioned.  I certainly wouldn't expect that menu item except when right clicking on a transfer transaction.

    Thanks so much for your quick replies. As I have used Quicken for over 20 years, I could tell right away something was off. I thought maybe the update yesterday changed the program. I was clicking in the Memo and Category section. And I had to click twice to get the context menu. I am using the latest Home & Business subscription version.

    This showed up yesterday after an update. Didn't have time to try to figure it out until today. There was another minor update today. Updated, didn't work. Closed and opened didn't work. Did a file validation, didn't fix it. I closed and opened again. It worked!!! Who knows?

    Thanks again for your help. Maybe this will help someone else who might have this problem
