In QuickBooks, users have the ability to open windows vertically, horizontally or cascade. These multiple types of views provide different benefits. For instance, if you want to reconcile an account and are dealing with a long list of transactions, then you may want to view the window vertically. Many monitors can now be tilted and hence the vertical view will provide more space for single documents.
Changing Window Setting for QuickBooks
For changing the view and layout of the window when working with QuickBooks, follow the steps provided below:
- Log into Windows.
- Click on Start Menu.
- Open Control Panel.
- Click on Display Settings.
- Select Orientation.
- Click on Landscape or Portrait and Select Apply.
- If you are happy with the settings, click on OK.
Note: Simply applying the setting will not change it. You need to click on OK for permanently setting the orientation or else the changes will be reverted.
For setting the monitor vertically, you can either use a monitor arm or wall mount it. For monitor stands, contact the manufacturer of the monitor for further information.
Also, you will have to note the resolution of your monitor. If the resolution does not support more space, then all you will get is a zoomed view. This will not be helpful. Thus, if you are working with a Full HD monitor, then we will not advise you to change the orientation of the screen.
QuickBooks Accounting Software
For managing windows, users have many other options. The best option by far is the Open Window List option. Through this list, users can easily cycle through all active windows of QuickBooks. In the left panel, users will find all windows listed with their description making it easier to move around the software.’
If you want to use Open windows list, then you have two options. You can either cycle from the window menu or activate the open windows list. To cycle through the window menu, follow the steps provided below:
- Log into QuickBooks.
- Click on Window from the top menu bar.
- Select the window you want to use.
This will bring up the window on which you click. This can be quite inefficiency when working with multiple windows. A better solution is to simply activate the open window list.
For doing so, users can Follow the Steps Provided Below:
- Log into QuickBooks.
- From the top menu, click on View.
- From the options provided, select Open Window List.
- A new list will appear in the left panel. Click on window name that you want to activate.
This open window list will appear in all active windows making it easier to cycle through the software. The only downside of this is that the left panel will be occupied with a list. Still, this will increase your efficiency, especially if you are managing multiple accounts.

Q I have a 4K monitor. Would changing the orientation work?
Yes, changing the orientation will provide more space either vertically or horizontally. Horizontal space is useful for working with multiple windows. It enables you to place those windows side by side. The vertical view will be useful when working with a single window.
