By default, Quicken displays the Account Bar on the left side of the screen as a tool to help you conveniently switch between accounts. If you don't see the Account Bar, it may have been turned off, be minimized, or be customized to appear on the right. In addition, the appearance of the Account Bar depends on how you've customized the working area of your register or transaction list, and whether you've hidden accounts.
