Thanks for you wonderful share, never new of this shortcut before, this is my first time of seeing this shortcut, with this i think i can be doing some thing first because with one click am already in the page i need to view, thanks for the great information.
Yap i am agree with my trader fellow that perform a very g03od job and in a nice way display all the keyboard shortcuts of the meta trader 4 but i never use these shortcut i am only do operations on mt4 by mouse clicking and do trading.
it is very much helpful for me to use mt4 more quickly. i use 46 pairs for trading, each pair give me signals after 15 to 20 days, for this reason, i need to use mouse and it is very disgusting, but i learn and get it from mt5 forum, i would like to give thanks first to mt5 forum admin for continuing this forum and 2ndly to the users. thanks , it save my time.
Its really helpful to know the short cut keys especially for the Mt5 terminal which almost everyone uses but honestly i don't think it is much to do with the results as there are not much requirement of short cuts keys after a trade is on but its better if we know all these stuff.
i know few keyboard short cuts for mt4 and mt 5 platforms .
F9- new order window
F 10 - popup window
F11 - open and close full screen mode
F 12 - move the chart
f 1 - open user guide
F2 open history window
Ctrl +p - print the chart
Mate don't get me wrong but what you have done is just copy/pasted the above stuff although you are new yet its better if you learn quickly not to do copy/pasting or silly post otherwise it wont take much time for you to get in trouble.
a quite good stuff you share most of the shortcut keys i really not know sometime it takes time to perform a task with the help of mouse i try few keys after learning from here and found it good so i can say it is good way to perform a task in a small period of time.
Thanks once again for the wonderful information about mts and 5 keyboard shortcut. This can make someone trade or apply some thing into our platform faster and easily, really appreciate this wonderful tutorial.
A compilation of keyboard shortcuts for the MetaTrader platforms
I have bookmarked this is I need them later on. that is a long compilation. but I think incase of mt4 trading, I personally prefer doing everything manually in regular way. even I don't go for shortcut keys. because there might be mistakenly some key will be pressed, and some trading might be closed or opened, or lot will be silently changed. so I do tem longcutly!
Thanks bro for sharing information because personally i use metatrader since last 5 month but even i dont know about the shortcut of the metatrader i think this information is very useful at the time of big news publish time because we handle pair fast fast when big news is coming
