Closed accounts still show in transaction lists
After 20 years of quicken, I have a lot of closed accounts. They are definitely closed, but they still show up in the "transfers" category when I'm entering a transaction. When I look at the account details the "hid in transaction lists" checkbox is gray and not editable. Is this normal behavior, or can I change it somehow?

No, sorry. I'm afraid that's not something you can change.
To avoid confusing closed accounts with live ones, I always edit the account register name and prefix all those account names with a Tilde character (~). This or using a “z” or “zzz” prefix will sort the accounts to the bottom of account selection lists, making it less likely to be confused with a live account.
e.g. “~AmEx Blue 1005”
Edited after original posting:
The use of the ~tilde character only works in Quicken for Windows. Mac users need to use “z” or “zzz”.1
Great suggestion. Thank you!0
