Option to show full screen calendar upon opening Quicken

edited October 2023 in Product Enhancements

I have used Quicken for ~25 years. My two most used views by far are the calendar and the register from my bank account. I cannot bring up the calendar easiy, nor toggle between the full screen calendar and the full screen register. These would be very welcome improvements

    I have been requesting for similar for years!!

    I do use a Calendar icon in top menu/task bar but it ALWAYS opens as a small window and I must EVERY TIME resize window. And I use a minimized Calendar from icon at bottom left screen.

    Additionally, simply use last calendar window size and position as default for anytime Calendar opens….the standard windows api.

    As a workaround, would adding a Calendar View to a Home tab Classic View page (or creating a new Classic View page, "My Calendar", containing only the Calendar View) help you in this situation? It opens bigger than the Tools / Calendar view page default size.
    Once created, you could optionally add this Home tab view as the Startup view, to be shown first when Quicken starts. (Edit / Preferences / Startup / Startup Location)

    You can add an icon to the Quicken Toolbar as a one-click switch to a specific bank account register. Customize the Toolbar and select to "Use a specific account" then select the desired account register from a popup list.
    Once added to the Toolbar you can one-click switch to the account register and click the Home tab to bring up the My Calendar View.

    Why was the Calendar removed and now hidden under tools? My most used screen!!!

    If you haven't done so already, you can easily add a Calendar icon to the Quicken Toolbar row of icons. This gives you one-click access to Calendar view.
    Go to View / Customize Toolbar to add, rearrange or delete toolbar icons.
    Ensure that View / Show Toolbar has a checkmark.
