You didn't mention what OS (Operating System) version is on your Mac. I have a MacBook Pro with OS X 10.6.8. I went to a later OS version, but could not use my version of Quicken, so my options were to buy a new version of Quicken or go back to OS X 10.6.8. I went back.

My screen looks different than your photos, but your info is all correct. I just wanted to let others know that theirs may not look exactly like yours. It's all good info though. Good job.

Great tips! Thank you.
