How do I change the intial setup of my premier desktop version, I selected "Contractor Edition" but want to change it?

Greetings, 2101pj.

 

If you're using QuickBooks Premier for Accountant, you can toggle it to another edition by following the steps below. 

 

  1. From the File menu, select Toggle to Another Edition.
  2. Select the edition.
  3. Click Next
  4. Click Toggle.

After that, QuickBooks will take a few moments to configure and will re-launch in the selected version.

 

However, if you're using QuickBooks Premier (non-Accountant), the option to toggle the edition is unavailable. You have to reinstall QuickBooks for Windows using a clean install to change your industry type. This process replaces the QuickBooks system files on your computer. Thus, it allows QuickBooks to add new install files later when you reinstall.

 

Please make sure to create a backup of your company file and keep the license number before uninstalling it.  For additional reference, you can open some in-product articles by pressing F1 or by going to the Help menu and choosing QuickBooks Desktop Help

 

Drop a comment below if you have any other questions about changing the industry edition of your QuickBooks. I'll be happy to help you out.
