What is Microsoft Money Essentials?

Microsoft Money Essentials was one of the versions of Microsoft’s Money which was labeled as a personal finance management software. This program would let users create budgets, view balances of bank accounts, and organize and track expenses. Anything on financial planning, banking and investing were facets of this money management software.

The features of Microsoft Money Essentials were all-inclusive. They included the following: merge two or more and duplicate accounts, automatic updates online, schedule and pay bills, back up data stored in the program and manage spending and budgeting reports.

All the Microsoft Money software products including Microsoft Money Essentials were replaced by Microsoft Money Plus Sunset in 2010. This is a downloadable software that highlights most of the features of the former finance management programs. This new version comes in two choices: Money Plus Deluxe Sunset and Money Plus Home & Business Sunset. Money Plus Deluxe Sunset is the version that replaced Microsoft Money Essentials, as well as other older versions called Microsoft Money Premium and Microsoft Money Deluxe. The other version of this new software, Money Plus Home & Business Sunset, is developed to replace Microsoft Money Home & Business.
