Toggle to the Pro Edition
Your trial software defaults to the Accountant edition. If you are using a Labyrinth 'QuickBooks Pro' book and your classroom is using Quick Grader, you must toggle to the Pro edition of the software every time you start QuickBooks. Even if your classroom does not use Quick Grader, toggling to Pro ensures your screen fully matches the illustrations and instructions in your book.
NOTE! If you're using a Labyrinth 'Payroll Accounting' book, there's no need to toggle to Pro.
- In QuickBooks, choose File > Toggle to Another Edition.
- Click in the circle to the left of QuickBooks Pro then click Next.
- Read the information in the window then click Toggle.
It will take a few moments for QuickBooks to toggle to Pro, so be patient. The title bar will show that you are toggled to the correct edition.

How do I know if I have a digital download? Look for a product/license key or an activation ID on the inside front cover of your book or on a square card bundled with your book. This information is used for the digital download.
Why do I have to download and install the software, isn't it the same thing? Downloading the software pulls a package from the Internet and places it on your computer. Installing essentially opens that package and sets up the software so you can use it.
What is my product number? For QuickBooks 2018, use 129-813. For QuickBooks 2017, use 760-899. For QuickBooks 2015, use 503-153.
How is the 30-day registration period different from the 140-day trial? Within 30 days of installing the software, you must register it with Intuit. The trial software is good for 140 days total from the date of installation.
Do I have to toggle to the Pro edition? If you are using our 'QuickBooks Pro' book and Quick Grader, you must toggle to the Pro edition so your screen matches the figures in the book. Remember to toggle to Pro every time you start QuickBooks. If you are using our 'QuickBooks Pro' book but not using Quick Grader, toggling is optional--but doing so ensures your screen matches the book. If you are using a 'Payroll Accounting' book, you do not need the Pro edition.
What if I am taking a QuickBooks course and a Payroll course at the same time? Install the software just once using either license key. Save the second key to install the software on another computer -- or on the same computer after the first trial expires.
What if I am taking a QuickBooks course and a Payroll course in different semesters? Install the software initially using either license key. If the trial expires before both classes end, uninstall the expired trial and then reinstall using the other key. Remember: For best results, uninstall and then reinstall!
How do I use the QuickBooks trial software with my Payroll Accounting textbook? Refer to your 'Payroll Accounting' student resource center or eLab course for guidance.
What if I'm using a Mac? Your QuickBooks trial software is for use on Windows-based PCs. It may not be installed on Mac computers or mobile devices using the iOS or Android operating system. More information about QuickBooks system requirements is available here.
