I do not use my mouse. I prefer to use hotkeys since it's much faster. However, after I've unchecked "show Home page when opening a company file" every time I open that company file I have to click on the quickbooks desktop to engage with it. If I leave it checked so that the Home page is displayed, then i have no problems and can hit Esc to close the Home page and carry on with what I need to do. I'm trying to make it so that the home page does not show when I open a company file, and I don't have to click on the quickbooks desktop first before I do anything. I usually keep my mouse up on a shelf as it's mostly useless for what I do and takes up desk space. Having to grab it and click on quickbooks is very irritating because the program becomes disengaged when I open a company file now (Title Bar at the top of the window is greyed out). I tried Alt-Tabbing to another window, and then back to quickbooks, but it's still disengaged. How can I fix this? Can you guys fix this in an update please? It's driving me nuts.
