Whether you like to focus on one thing at a time or jump from task to task, QuickBooks can display windows to suit your style. To work on one thing, you can display only one window at a time, or you can have several windows open at once and switch windows at any time. Either way, QuickBooks has several ways to choose the window you want to be active. The first step is to set the preference for how you want the desktop to look. On the Edit menu, choose Preferences. Click Desktop View.
To see one window at a time, select the One Window option and click OK. The current widow fills the screen. If you open another window, it takes over the entire screen. To keep several windows open at once, go back to the Preferences window, select the Multiple Windows option, and click OK. You can see different windows overlapping one another. Move them by dragging their title bars, resize them by dragging edges or corners, and bring them to the front by clicking.
If you can't see the window you want, QuickBooks has two ways to make it active. On the Window menu, choose the window you want. The Open Windows List takes up some screen space, but it's very convenient. On the View menu, choose Open Windows List to display it. The Open Windows List contains all open windows. To make a window active regardless of how deep it's buried, just click its name. Go ahead and pick your windows preference.
From then on, QuickBooks serves up windows the way you want.
