Good day, assetydoc. 

 

I'd be glad to walk you through the steps.

 

You can change the direction of your My Shortcuts tab by going to View > Top Icon Bar. Here's a sample screenshot of what it looks like:

 

 

For adding the Write Check option, here's how:

 

  1. Click the Rightwards Arrow located in the upper right-hand before the search field.
  2. Select Customize Icon Bar.
  3. In the Customize Icon Bar window, click the Add button.
  4. In the Add Icon Bar Item, highlight the Write Checks option. Then, select an icon, edit the Label and Description.
  5. Hit the OK button twice.

Please see this sample screenshot:

 

 

I'm also adding this article that you can bookmark for future reference: Create, modify, and print checks.

 

If you need anything else, just leave me a reply and I'll get back to you. Thanks.

Thank you for posting here at Community @fgraziano.

 

There might be data damage in your company file. Let's suppress QuickBooks to resolve this.

 You may follow these steps below:

  1. Press the control key in your keyboard, double click the Quickbooks Desktop icon. 

Reminders: Continue pressing the Control key until it will appear the" No company Open"window if QuickBooks shows an error on your screen

  1. Click the Company File, then select Open.

I will share an article in case you will encounter an error: QuickBooks Desktop doesn't start or won't open.

 

If you have doubts don't hesitate to message me. Have a wonderful day!
