Payroll setup wizard

Has anyone ran into an issue with the Payroll setup Wizard window? I'm trying to use the payroll wizard to set up my payroll but there are words that are overlapping and it makes it hard to choose options or follow the instructions? I've tried to change my display settings but nothing seems to work! I attached a snapshot of the issue I am running into.. Hopefully someone can help me out!

Payroll setup wizard

Let's see to it that your QuickBooks Desktop is updated, BPrints.


Updating the software's installation resolves the most common issues in the program such as display issues. You can follow these steps to start the process:

  1. Click the File menu in the upper left-hand corner, and then click Close Company/Logoff. Do the same steps for all the open company files.
  2. Go back to the File menu and select Exit.
  3. On your desktop screen, right-click the QuickBooks icon and select Run as Administrator.
  4. In the No Company Open screen, click Help in the upper right-hand corner and choose Update QuickBooks.
  5. Go to the Options tab, select Mark All, and then click Save.
  6. Go to the Update Now tab, check the Reset Update box, and then click the Get Updates button.
  7. When you see the Update Complete message, restart QuickBooks.
  8. If you get the message to install the update, click Yes or Install Now.
  9. Restart your computer after the installation is complete.

Once done, go back to the Payroll Setup wizard and continue setting up your payroll.
