Headaches, and my at-home, dialup Internet connection was unreliable. (With a fast cable modem connection now, however, I really do like online banking.) The credit card stuff and cash account stuff don’t do much for me. But you know what? Those tools may do wonderful things for you. It depends on the way you’ve organized your finances. I guess the bottom line, to me, is that the least useful features depend on what you don’t need to do. But what you don’t need to do will probably differ.

Categories. My experience, though, is that you’ll probably use only a handful of categories. Printing checks (and other forms) You can use Quicken to print checks. This little trick provides a couple of benefits: It’s really fast if you have several checks to print, and your printed checks look very neat and darn professional. To print checks, you need to do just two things. First, look through the check supply information that comes with Quicken, and pick a check form that suits.

The Privacy Preferences command This command displays information about the ways Intuit attempts to keep your financial data secure and about the business practices that Intuit employs. The command also provides a couple of check boxes you can use to tell Intuit whether you’re cool with them collecting usage statistics. If you’re not, you uncheck some boxes and your copy of Quicken won’t share information with Intuit about how easily Quicken.

Available to expedite and elucidate your budgeting efforts. Note: Quicken displays a little calculator icon when you’ve selected a text box that accepts a value in both the Graph View and Grid View. Click the Calculator icon to display a pop-up calculator to make computations on the fly. If you want to set specific amounts for each month of the year, select Grid View from the second drop-down list box shown at the top of the Budgets window. Or click the Budget Actions button and choose.

Delayed. I’ve been using online banking and bill payment for maybe a dozen years now, and a time or two a year, people or businesses call and say, “Dude, we never got your payment” or, “Dude, we got your check late — you owe us a late fee.” In comparison, my experience is that the U.S. Postal Service almost never loses my mailed payments. Paying bills You have three ways to record online payments. If you’re comfortable using the Write Checks window, you write a check in the usual way.
