*Desktop: Refers to a version of QuickBooks that is physically installed in a computer desktop or laptop that runs Microsoft Windows as the operating system (in contrast with a Apple Mac or a Chrome Book)
*Users: refers to the total number of people that can be logged into QuickBooks with their own credentials (even simultaneously). This is an important term to understand for teams that are in a “multi-user” environment. Note: some versions of QuickBooks can limit some users to have restricted access to specific areas of QuickBooks, such as banking or errors.
