Quickbooks Enterprise & Quick Type

Hello all,
This one baffles me and I have no idea what to do.
Have a client that is having a problem in the item list in Quickbooks.  When she goes to search for an item(like MUGS) when she types in an M it goes to the M.  When she types in a U instead of going to MU it goes to the U's.  When she types in a G instead of going to MUG it goes to the G's .
I have removed all unnecessary columns on that view.  Didn't help.
I changed the screen size from 1920x1280 down to 1024x768 but that didn't help.
Did a re-sort of the item list (and all other lists).  That didn't help.
Did the latest QB update but that didn't help.
Did the latest Windows updates but that didn't help.
I am not sure what else to do to fix this.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Kelly W.

Is the user clearing the first search before starting the second?   That is, M, Search, clear M, U, Search.

The item search works properly for me:  QB Premier V2017.

Shouldn't have to do a clear when it is quick type and not a ture search where you are typing the search box.

I think you should. Otherwise the search cache keeps the first letter. Try as I suggested and see if that resolves the issue.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Well I have a reset button and not a clear button.  That is grayed out when you do quick type since you are not typing in the search field so that is a no go.

Are you running from within the List?  That does not happen to me.

Yes I am from within the list.  This is not happening on the other computers either.  I thought it was a timing issue with typing.  So I typed in MUGS as quickly as possible and it still does it.
Makes no sense.

Thanks for the feedback. At this point, since other computers are working correctly, Repair QB on the problem computer, or even uninstall / reinstall QB. In either case, restart when you are done.

Did an uninstall/reinstall of QB and that didn't help.  Will do a repair QB.

OK.  Another thing to try, then, is to make a new, test, Windows User Profile (Account). Log into the new Windows Account, set up QuickBooks and test.

It was a corrupt user profile.
Thank you so very much.
