QB for Mac 2019

I am using Quickbooks 2019 for Mac with version 18.0.5 R6 my home screen has changed to a large blue screen with the home screen in the middle. How do I reset it to the condensed home screen only?

Thanks for posting in the Community, @Illaya1113.

I’m here to help get the previous home screen back on your QuickBooks Desktop.

You need to uninstall and reinstall the program to fix the issue. Make sure to prepare the QBDT installation CD or simply download the installer from the website before performing the following steps.

Let me show you how:

  1. Close the program.
  2. Go to the Finder menu and click Go.
  3. Select Applications.
  4. Click the QuickBooks icon and drag it to the Trash.
  5. Download your QuickBooks Desktop for Mac version.
  6. Close all running applications.
  7. Insert the QuickBooks CD or double-click the downloaded installer. 
  8. Drag the QuickBooks icon to the Applications folder. 
  9. Open the application by double-clicking the QuickBooks icon.

This should resolve the display home screen issue on your QuickBooks Desktop for Mac. Refer to these articles for more information: 

That should do it. Please give this a try and let me know if it fixes the problem. Thanks for dropping by and take care!

You probably maximized the window. Move your mouse to the top left of the window and you should see the standard Apple Window title bar appear with the three "stop light" circles: Red, Yellow, and Green.  Click on the Green one.
