To delete an account, you can follow these steps: (NOTE: Read Caution after steps prior to deleting account).

  • Choose Tools menu > Accounts List.
  • Click the Edit button next to the account you want to delete.
  • In the Account Details dialog, click Delete Account.
  • In the confirmation dialog, type Yes.
  • Click OK.


Deleting an account permanently removes that account's records from your file. Once you delete an account, there's no way to recover the account or the information about your transactions that it contained. In addition, Quicken deletes the account name from the Category field of all transactions that have transfers to the account. These transactions appear as uncategorized transactions in reports.

In most cases, we recommend that you hide or close an account instead:

1. Choose Tools menu > Manage Hidden Accounts:
2. Find the account that you want to hide or close in the list, and then select one or more of its Hiding Options.
