Old, hidden accounts are showing-up in the registry category field

I recently ran across a transfer I mistakenly made to an old, hidden account.  Now, there is a check box to show hidden categories which allows you to toggle them on and off (they are off by default) but what about hidden accounts?

    The settings for hidden accounts are best controlled in Tools / Manage Hidden Accounts.
    Have you marked the old, hidden accounts as "closed" in Quicken (if they are closed at the bank)?
    Because there used to be (or maybe still is) a problem with hidden accounts still showing in Category selection lists, I have always renamed these old accounts. Putting a "~"(tilde) or a "Z" character in front of the account register name sorts these accounts to the bottom of the list and makes it less likely for me to pick them up by mistake ... e.g., "~ABC Bank Checking".
    I recommend you do the same.
