How do I remove old bank accounts from my check register on quickbooks?

How do I remove old bank accounts from my check register on quickbooks?

Hi there, @preachperry.


Thanks for posting your question here. I'd be glad to lend a hand with removing old bank accounts from your check register in QuickBooks.


Before going into detail, you may need to deactivate the Bank Feeds feature in QuickBooks Desktop.


First, before you deactivate Bank Feeds, make sure you've matched or deleted all the downloaded transactions for the account.


Next, it's time to deactivate the Bank Feeds, here's how:

  1. Select Lists and then choose Chart of Accounts.
  2. Right-click the account you want to deactivate, go to Edit Account.
  3. Click on the Bank Settings.
  4. Pick Deactivate all online services and then OK to confirm.
  5. When you're ready, select Save & Close.

After completing the steps above, QuickBooks won't download any new transactions.


If trying to deactivate your account doesn't work, and you're receiving an error, refer back to this article to fix Bank Feed errors: Can't deactivate Bank Feeds for an account.


Let me know if the information above does the trick. If you have any more questions or concerns, I'm only a few clicks away. Happy Wednesday!
