Can I eliminate the open windows function of QB POS 18.0?

The windows function although a nice feature causes my staff problems.  They can go to "item list" then click on "make a sale" and the item they were looking at appears in the "make a sale" that is a problem


Hello, charleyiv.

Thanks for reaching out to us. I'm here to address your QuickBooks Desktop Point of Sale (POS) concern, so let me get this straightened out.

At this time, disabling the multi-windows function in QuickBooks Desktop POS is unavailable. The software is designed to have its multi-windows functionality to make a sale.

While the option that you're looking for is not yet available, I'd encourage you to post this idea in our Feature Suggestion board. This is the ideal place for you to share your thought about the software to our product developers. You can that by going to the Help menu and selecting Send Feedback Online in QuickBooks 

From there, our developers take your comments to help improve the product. 

If you have any other concerns, don't hesitate to visit us again. I'm always glad to help. Wishing you the best.

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.
