Switch between Essential Bills and Advanced Bills
Money offers two ways to manage your bills: Essential Bills and Advanced Bills.
To switch between these two settings:
  1. On the Tools menu, click Settings.
  2. On the Microsoft Money Plus settings page, click Bill settings.
  3. Depending on your current setting, choose one of the following:
    • Click switch to Advanced Bills, and then click Use Advanced Bills.
    • Click switch to Essential Bills, click Use Essential Bills, and then click Yes.
  4. Click OK.


Make sure you understand what features are available before switching. Although the Advanced Bills setting requires additional setup and management time, it offers you more detailed features for tracking and paying your bills. If you prefer a streamlined approach to bills, use Essential Bills for basic bill tracking and payment options.
