I'll barge in and give you some details about listing the categories when searching.
Are you referring to your product categories? We're unable to list them when using the Search function in QuickBooks. The function only lists customers, vendors, transactions, reports, or accounts.
You'll want to go to the Lists page to see your product categories instead. Go to the Gear icon, select All list, then select Product categories.
However, if you're looking to list your accounts when searching, make sure to use keywords such as "bank", "receivable" or "loan." The accounts may not show up if the keywords use do not correspond with their names.
Alternatively, you can always visit the Chart of Accounts page to look for the account you're searching for. Simply go to the Accounts menu, then select the Chart of Accounts tab.
