Downloading updates in Quicken takes very long--any way to lessen time

My updates in Quicken can take up to 15 mins.  I have comparable information on Money (converted file from Money) and Money does the same updates in a few seconds.   I am using both until my Money subscription runs out and can no longer update, then I will be on Quicken only which is at present runnijng much slower.   Why does Quicken take so  much longer to update accounts. Are there options I can set so that the update downloads go faster?

Thank you to anyone who knows the answer

Answer

You might want to look into scheduling updates (Tools) if you have not done so already.  Can greatly speed things along.  Set to run on Windows startup.

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.
