Can't Export <All accounts>

Longtime Quicken user here. I want to use the Export function to export all my account info to 1 QIF file. The Quicken Help system says that when I choose to Export, in the Accounts drop down list, I should have an option of <All Accounts>. Nope, not there. So the only thing I can export is any given 1 account at a time. I'm using Quicken on a Windows 10 machine and have updated both Windows and Quicken to the latest versions. Any thoughts?

    It may be yet another limitation of Starter. I can't say for sure since I've never used it.

    This selection shows up in the "account to export from" selection list:

    That option does not show up in the dropdown list.

    Really? It does / did for me when I entered the Export dialog for the first time. The <All accounts> selection appears at the very top of the selection list, followed by all account names in alphabetical order ... you may have to scroll up ...

    I am thinking I will uninstall and reinstall Quicken. Maybe that will help.

    Don't reinstall. The menu item is there at the very top of the menu. Scroll up. By default the menu chooses the currently open account. If you go away from accounts, say to Home or Portfolio, then <All accounts> will appear first in the list.

    The option is not there even when I scroll up. I am using Starter subscription edition.

    You were right, Rocket. It was a limitation of the Starter edition. Upgrading to Deluxe returned All Accounts to my options for exporting a QIF file. Thanks for your help.
