Now...when I open the Bank file in GnuCash, it seems all my transactions are there BUT I can not get the same look/screen that I have on Quicken. In GnuCash on the right side of the window I seem to just get a running total. In quicken, I would have the same figure on the right side as I would on my paper ledger
Not sure I entirely understand what you did. Sounded like you felt that you had to use Windows to download the QIF. I use Firefox on Linux to do all my on-line banking. So you should not feel you need Windows to interact with your bank sites.
My gnucash has a deposit, a withdrawal and a balance column on the right side of the account screen. So I am not sure what you are seeing or what you are expecting.
When I started with gnucash, I just went all the way through the tutorial
before really using it.
As TB0ne said, gnucash is not Quicken.
