What keys do I use/press to display usage/historical info in QB 2017 PRO?

I'm trying to find out how long I've been a QB user and what is the actual version of QB I have. I know there is some combo of keys to display this info.


I went to purchase the newest version through Intuit and it tried to sell me a 3 license version.

Hi there, @Wayne 1.

You can open the Product Information window that shows the version and the data usage of your QuickBooks.


Here’s how:

  1. Open the QuickBooks Desktop.
  2. Press the F2 key on your keyboard.
  3. Look for your product name, product number, and license number in the Product Information window.
  4. In the Usage information section, you’ll see the Date First Used.
  5. Look for your release at the end of the product name.
  6. Hit OK once done.

Thank you. I accidentally stumbled on to that answer by mistake a moment ago when I was showing my employee the problem I was having to get to that information screen.


Thanks, Wayne

As a user since V3.1 I should have known that. Actually I did know that, but time made me forget it. That time thief is stealing to many memories from me. Thank you.
