Do you need to know where is the Gear icon in QuickBooks is located If you're a new user, you might be unsure of where to find the QuickBooks gear icon that shows your account settings. The settings option is easily accessible and has a same position in every edition of QuickBooks. It can be found on the upper right side of your application. It might occasionally disappear or become inaccessible. Our internet explorer, which is QuickBooks' default browser, has an enormous accumulation of history and cached data, which is the cause of this issue.
