    Does anybody know why a file named Q3 is created on my desktop whenever I
    backup my data files on exiting Quicken 2004. My OS is XP Home. I moved
    the Desktop icon to the same folder as the fileset, and no change.
    Am I missing Something ????

    Thanks
    John

  2. Right click on the shortcut.

    In the "Starts in:" field put the location of the Quicken data file(s).
