Most Important QuickBooks Preferences: Open Window List, Desktop View

Filed in Accounting, Business, Intuit QuickBooks by on April 22, 2013

The most important QuickBooks Preferences are the easiest to use.

One click lets you instantly switch between several different QuickBooks windows, forever. It also lets you instantly see when you have more open windows than you need. Extra open windows are the fastest way to slow down QuickBooks, especially if you make the mistake of opening the previous set of open windows when you start. Many QuickBooks professionals, like me, consider these the most important QuickBooks preferences.

To keep your QuicklBpooks windows list open forever, for all clients, simply go to the main View Menu and choose Open Windows List. To avoid the long wait that often occur when open QuickBooks after closing it with many open windows, go to the main Edit, Preferences menu and choose Desktop view. Then click on My Preferencs, Multiple Windows and Don’t Save the Desktop. To close too many open windows quickly, go to the main Window menu and Close All.

Combining these most important QuickBooks Preferences (Open Windows List, and Desktop View) will make a big differences in how fast your work gets done.
