How do I stop dowloading [sic] future transactions into a bank register?

What the original poster was seeing were not future "transactions": they were "confirmations" for instructions for future online billpay transactions. One distinction between a "transaction" and a "confirmation": downloaded "transactions" get a "c" in the Quicken "Cleared Status" column, downloaded "confirmations" do not. When the actual online bill pay "transaction" is downloaded in the future, it should "Match" the downloaded bill pay "confirmation".

Also it should not be necessary to change the Connection Method from Direct Connect to Express Web Connect to stop receiving downloaded billpay "confirmations" (EWC is a decidedly inferior Connection Method): all that was necessary was to deactivate the Quicken account for "Bank Bill Pay" (earlier known as "Online Payment"). "Bank Bill Pay" is a separate downloading feature from "transaction download", so an account can be activated for "transaction download" while deactivated for "Bank Bill Pay".
