QuickBooks opens with login screen at far upper corner of Windows desktop

When launching QuickBooks Desktop, the login screen for username & password is at a far upper corner and may only be partially visible. The QuickBooks screen opens in a tiny window or may open in normal size but the login screen is disconnected (this appearance may be inconsistent from one attempt to the next).

How to fix it
  1. Close QuickBooks Desktop.
  2. Navigate to the location of qbw.ini file of the affected version.
    Location: C:\Program Data\Intuit\QuickBooksYearVersion
  3. Look for [WINDOWSTATE] and change the Left= and  Top= values to 500.

  4. Click Save and close the qbw.ini file
  5. From the desktop, hold down the CTRL key and double click the desktop icon to launch the affected version.
