Windows Version of Quicken on the Mac

Q:

The only hesitation I have about switching to the Mac concerns Quicken. I have used that program on Windows for over 20 years. All the reviews on the Mac version are less than favorable.

If I install Windows on the Mac, would I still be able to run my current Quicken program?

A:

Yes. When you install Windows on a Mac, using Apple’s Boot Camp utility, the Mac is turned into a full-fledged Windows computer, whenever you choose. So Quicken — or any Windows program — should work fine.

If you install Windows in a virtual machine program, such as Parallels, you should also be able to run your Quicken software.

Q:

When I am using Google Chrome on my computer, there is no icon for printing on the page. What do I do?

A:

Click on the icon at the upper right that looks like a stack of short lines. It opens a menu of options that includes one labeled “Print… .” Click on that and you should be able to print.
