Every time I click on item list from the home screen i get the message, "Quickbooks got stuck for a second please try again."

Every time I click on item list i get the message. I am up to date and running as administrator. Don't know whats going on


Hey there, alan.

Thanks for letting me know that you're already running as the Administrator and that your QuickBooks Point of Sale is up to date. It's my priority that you'll be able to click on the item list without any errors.

The Community is a public space and for security reasons, I'm unable to request the sensitive information required to pull up your account. I suggest contacting our QuickBooks Point of Sale Support Team. 

One of our support agents can check the setup of your item list. They also have the tools to determine what's causing the error and make sure you'll get back into business in no time.

You'll find the updated phone number through this link: Which Payments product do you need help with?

Check out the "POS got stuck for a second" message when QuickBooks Point of Sale not running as Windows admin article for future reference.

Let me know if you have any more questions about using QuickBooks. Please know that I'm here to make running your business more simple. Have a good one.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support 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.
