2) - "2017 ... Release R3(or higher)", https://www.quicken.com/support/quicken-2017-windows-release-notes-updates-and-mondo-patchPlease do this even if you already are at the latest release:
Locate the Mondo Patch file in the link
Download it and save it to disk.
Temporarily disable your Antivirus software for the entire duration of the next step:
Right-click the downloaded patch file. Click "Run as Administrator" to execute the installation program.
This will replace any Quicken software modules with a known consistent release level and, hopefully, eliminate any software corruption or errors during installation as a cause of this issue.
If you check I'm sure you have this option on:
Well it seems that at times Quicken is some how putting some hidden/off screen dialog in the upper left/right of the screen and it has the "default" button set. Your mouse is jumping to that button.
I know because the same happens to me. I really like that feature especially on a laptop I have where I'm using a touch pad.
So I will try to recreate it as I did not copy the text.
YES, we need this mouse feature to work. The "Snap To" function within Windows saves a LOT of mouse movement, especially on pop up dialog boxes. Most if not all apps I have used in the past have utilized this built in Windows feature, even previous version of Quicken. I am running Windows 10, with all current updates. I upgraded from Q 2016 Premier to Q 2017 (Rel 3) Home & Business. Install went fine, my data file converted ok, but I had to redo my register column settings. Only other issues I have noticed so far is that when Quicken 2017 starts up, the register appears and it takes a couple of seconds for the left and top parts to appear. Most of the update features work like Download Transactions and Quotes, but the Update Bills function crashed on me ( I sent a crash report to Quicken). Clearly a BUG that should NOT be some Honey Do list but on a priority list.
Quicken Mouse Pointer Problem
Quicken 2017 Deluxe – Version R4 – Build 18.104.22.168
MS Windows 10 Pro – Version 10.0.14393 – Build 14393
I have Windows “Snap To” enabled for my Mouse. Whenever there is a focus change in Quicken, the mouse pointer jumps to the upper left screen corner and not to the active form button that is intuitive.
I've migrated through many PAID FOR versions of Quicken over many years.
Seems Intuit has lost their skilled software developers.
VERY SAD! (as our new President might tweet)
This software BUG remains unacceptable after many months (5 months so far, and all 6 versions of Quicken 2017, now R6).
Program opens - pointer jumps to top left corner of screen.
Drag my cursor back down to click on One Step Update - pointer immediately jumps to top left corner of screen as new dialog box opens.
Drag my cursor back down to click on and Enter password for my Intuit ID, click Sign In - pointer immediately jumps to top left corner of screen as new dialog box opens.
Drag my cursor back down to click on Update Now, Update completes then - pointer immediately jumps to top left corner of screen.
Drag my cursor back down to begin doing some data entry.
The whole point of "Snap To" for Mouse settings was to save time and effort while doing productive work. This is NOT Rocket Science!?!? I don't know what your programming language calls it, but both you and the code need to get control of "Focus" for the pointer.
