Adjust window layout

You can adjust the window layout on MetaTrader4 (MT4) / MetaTrader5 (MT5) to your liking. When you change your layout, MT4/MT5 will automatically save these settings, so you don't need to adjust them again when you log back in.

Here we'll take a look at how to adjust the windows layout in MT4/MT5.

Switch between MT4/MT5 tabs to check the steps for each.
