Change the location of the icon bar

In the newest releases of QuickBooks, the default location of the icon bar is the left side of the window.  However, it can be moved to the top, collapsed or hidden.

Detailed instructions

To move the icon bar, choose the View menu and then select where you want it located.

 

  • Top Icon Bar - resembles the Home Page in older versions of QuickBooks. It displays Vendors, Customers, Employees, Company and Banking Centers. It also displays Account Balances, Do More with QuickBooks, Backup Status and Reminders and Alerts.

 

  • Left Icon Bar - Displays My Shortcuts , My Apps, Do Today, View Balances , Run Favorite Reports and Do More With QuickBooks on the left. It will then display the Vendors, Customers, Employees, Company and Banking Centers to the right.

  • You can also collapse the left icon bar to a narrow navigation column by clicking the arrow to the right of Search Company or Help. However, this does not change the items displayed on the Home Page.

 

  • Hide Icon Bar - removes the icons from the Home Page and displays Vendors, Customers, Employees, Company and Banking Centers. It also displays Account Balances, Do More with QuickBooks, Backup Status and Reminders and Alerts.

 

 

If these steps do not resolve the issue, you can read discussions and post messages and questions relating to your issue on the Intuit QuickBooks Community site for free or you can contact a technical support agent for additional guidance. Fees may apply.
