    Customizing MT4 Platform

    The MetaTrader 4 platform can be customized to suit your individual preferences.

    To customize the toolbar click View button in the main menu, and then choose Toolbars, you will be able to hide or show certain sections of the toolbar. If you click View button in the main menu and then choose Toolbars, and select Customize, you will be able to choose which panels should be shown or hidden. In the Customization toolbar window you’ll be able to select the order of the buttons or add any other buttons, which are not displayed by default. The changes are saved automatically. After you did customization click Close button.

    To hide all the panels except chart windows, please click F11. To return to standard terminal view, click F11 again.
