QuickBooks QBW File Location

Though it is easy to save the file but hard to locate. If you are still figuring out what is a QBW file and how to access QuickBooks QBW file location then you are not alone.

What is a QuickBooks QBW File?

Whenever you create a company file then it is created in a workable format with an .QBW extension. But when you go and try to save the file after entering all the data then you will not find the option under the file menu tab. By default, the software was developed without having a Save option. This doesn’t mean that if you don’t see a save button then the company file with .QBW extension cannot be saved. Whatever you work on, is saved within the default QuickBooks Qbw file location which you can access later on.

Save your Company File

  • Login to your QuickBooks accounts.
  • Create the same company file. This you can do by clicking on the New company tab.
  • A new company tab can be found under the File option, located on the top navigation bar.
  • Put in the required details. All will be self-explanatory. Just fill in the info.
  • Once all is done, click OK.
  • The moment you press ok, your file will be automatically saved. Note that the company file will be saved in a .QBW format.
  • To locate the saved file, just click on the Company’s tab which can be found on the top navigation bar.

Thus, the real trick of saving the company within QuickBooks is by hitting “OK”. But the same is not true when you want to save bills as it can be done by using the save icon within the program.
