Checks disappear after being entered

So, this just started happening today. I have to use the search button to find the check I just wrote. Quicken finds it buried about 3 or 4 years ago amongst long reconciled transactions. This is not acceptable. If I write the check today I want to see it with any other transactions entered on 6/17/23. Can someone help?

    OK, disregard. I figured it out. Somehow my sorting preference was messed up. I have no clue how that happened but at least it's fixed.

    You can sort by most of the columns in the register by just clicking the column heading.  Also you can sort by Order Entered, which is handy when doing a lot of entries.  While in a register, click on "Account Actions", select "Sorting Options", select "by order entered" should get you what you are looking for. Or for earlier versions click Options at the top of the register on the right side. If you sort by anything other than the Date column you might not get a true running balance.  So after you sort and look around be sure to sort it back by the Date.

    Or maybe the register is filtered.  Maybe you typed the wrong date or year on it so it got sorted somewhere else in the list off the screen.
