How can I go back to the principal menu if my profile is showing me only reports?


I can help you resolve the missing tabs from your QBO account, regeane.

Are the tabs from the left menu missing from your account? If so, just click on the hamburger icon on top of your company logo. I'll be adding a screenshot below for your reference. 

If the steps mentioned above didn't work, I suggest clearing the cache of the browser that you're currently using. This is to isolate and verify if this is a browser issue.

First, try using a private browser or an incognito window when trying to log in to your account and check if the menu from the left navigation bar. If it works, clear the cache in the one that you're currently using:

Here's how:

  • For Safari, hold down Command+Shift+N.
  • For Chrome, press Ctrl+Shift+N.
  • For Internet Explorer or Firefox, press Ctrl+Shift+P.

Then, if it works, here's clearing temporary internet files and cache article for detailed guidance. You can also visit this help articles for QuickBooks Online to help you get going.

Keep me posted about how it goes and if you have other concerns by leaving a comment below. I'll be always around to help. Take care and have a great rest of the day.

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.
