After changing to Win7 from XP, I no longer can adjust column widths in Quicken 2009 reports.

In XP, I could click and drag the left or right margins on any column to change the width to my liking.  After reinstalling in Win 7, column widths are locked .   Anyone else have this problem?

Quicken 2011 and older does not support the Windows Desktop Customization feature that makes characters appear larger on screen. Customization values of "Large Font" or a DPI setting greater than 100% or 96 DPI are not supported. In Quicken, this results in columns "snapping shut" when you try to adjust column width and other "odd behavior".
You need to undo the Windows Desktop settings change and then you'll be able to adjust column width smoothly.
If characters are too small on screen and Font style and size settings in Preferences / Register / Fonts cannot overcome the issue, you need to reduce screen resolution in Windows (but do not go below 1024 * 768).

People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
