If you haven't used Quicken before, you'll find that the Express Setup steps you through the process of entering all your financial information, such as your bank accounts, credit cards, mortgage, bills, and so on. As you move through the setup, Quicken asks you to enter specific information about yourself and your accounts. If you have online access to some of your accounts, you are given the option to download the account information directly into Quicken. There is still some manual entry involved, but it is less than typing it in yourself. If you don't have online access to your accounts, you can enter the information and set it up for online access later, if it's available.
