Quicken 2001.

Will Quicken Basic 2001 work on a computer with WIN Home XP? I have the original CD from Quicken Basic 2001 which I purchased several years ago and installed on an older desktop PC which has an OS of WIN 95. Can I use the Quicken Basic 2001 CD on a newer computer which has WIN Home XP?

Mr. Proffitt:

I installed my old Quicken Basic 2001 financial software on my brother's new Dell Inspiron 1300 notebook which I received from him in April 2006 and I was surprised that the installation worked

The only problem which I haven't been able to correct; that is if I can correct it is this; the Quicken register appears much smaller on the screen of the Dell notebook; it's screen size is 15.4" and it's hard to view the print as I enter it into Quicken's register.

My old WIN 95 desktop PC was and still is connected to a 17" KDS flat screen CRT and is very easy on the eyes. The Quicken register on the Dell notebook monitor appears as if it has been pulled or stretched from each end.

Can the size of the Quicken register be increased on the Dell notebook screen for easier viewing as it is on my KDS 17" CRT or not? I did contact Quicken tech support earlier today and was told to have a major credit card ready and be prepared to be charged a per incident charge of $24.95. I decided to hang up and post my question here instead. If you can offer any assistance; I would appreciate it.

Try setting the screen resolution to 800 x 600.

I don't know of any other trick.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
