How to Change the Color of QuickBooks Account Registers
In our last newsletter we explained how to change the bank account that was used when a check was inadvertently created in the wrong account. A QuickBooks consultant wrote to tell us that she has clients change the display of the color of the bank registers so they match the color of the physical checks.
To change the color displayed in the bank register, open the register from the Chart of Accounts window. Then choose Edit, Change Account Color from the QuickBooks menu bar. Select a color that matches or comes close to the color of the physical checks. When you open the Write Checks window, the color of the check changes to match the color assigned to the register. Thanks to QuickBooks consultant Liz Fleming for this tip.
