I have a Windows 10 Pro machine that I am going to join to the domain (Windows Server 2012 Essentials), Currently the user has Quickbooks installed and has Office 365 installed with Outlook running in the desktop application. When I join her to the domain will I lose the Outlook settings? The user will still be able to access QB correct with her credentials? I don't care about her other settings such as fonts, colors, or bookmarks, I  just would like to keep her access to the desktop Outlook account.

QuickBooks will still work the same. There should not be any issue. I assume you have the Server Manager running on the server

Outlook should also be fine if you are keeping the same hosted Exchange settings or POP settings.

This is setup so they can open them from 3 computers but not at the same time. We share a folder on the network and then we navigate to it with the system, however each system must have a QB installation.

You'll be using a domain profile, so the user will be using a new profile and all the settings of the local profile will be lost. But it should be possible to copy files from the local profile to the domain profile.

For QB you need a 3 user license, the server manager installed, and open in Multi User mode. All will work.
