Using Quicken 2013, will it work under Windows 8 that is to come out on the 26 of October 2012. I like to use the new windows 8, but understand it may not work under it for Quicken 2013 system

Answer

If you look on the System Requirements page of this article:
http://quicken.intuit.com/personal-finance-software/deluxe-money-management.jsp
you will not see Windows 8 listed as a supported OS.
I know during beta testing, that there were a couple of users using Windows 8 and I don't remember them having problems, but that is no guarantee for the rest of the user population.
If at all possible, I would test Quicken on Windows 8 before taking the step permanently.
YMMV

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.
