Q. Quicken register two lines [HOWTO] [SOLVED]

Q. I know you use Quicken from some of your other “tip” posts, can you help me with something? Specifically, I added a new checking account to Quicken Deluxe 2015 and the register seems to be stuck at one line-height for the new account 🙁 How do I get it back to the old two lines?! Thx! -Tony M.

A. Hi Tony, I think I can help! There are a couple of ways to do it:

  • Click the “gear” icon in the upper right of the register, then choose “Two-line Display” from the drop-down
  • Press “Ctrl+2” (Ctrl and 2 at the same time) while in the account you want to change

Hopefully, either method will do the trick for you!

PS here is a screenshot showing where you check the box:

Check the Two-line display box! 🙂

NOTE: according to readers, these instructions also work for Quicken 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. Whew, that is a LOT of years! 🙂
