Why am I seeing “More Accounts” in my account list?

I have closed many accounts over the years in my quicken file, and I only wish to see my active accounts. But in my account list, at the bottom of each type of account (banking, investing, property) I am seeing 'more accounts'. When I select the more accounts - I see all my closed accounts and a selectable 'manage hidden accounts'.

Is this the way the app works? Or is there a way to turn off this 'more accounts' in my list.

thanks!

    That's the way it works.

    I know of no way to remove or turn off the "more accounts" feature. Even though those accounts are closed, their historical data is needed for historical reporting and to maintain the integrity of your data file. Your currently open accounts are built upon the transactions of those closed accounts. Each account is usually not "stand-alone" but it intertwines, transactionally, with other accounts, open or closed. That being said, sometimes it is necessary to access these closed accounts to trouble shoot current data issues.
