I'm "considering" Win 10 from the "mostly" good things that I've heard about it but I plan to do an "image copy" of my current drive, before upgrading to Win10, that way, if I don't care for Win 10 , I just drop in the Win7 image drive and I'm back to "Win7", nothing lost by trying it, as Win10 is a free upgrade and I can always re-format the spare drive and use it again..

Any one know what is the current status of the privacy issues re Windows 10?

There was a lot of discussion about MS being authorized to have access to everything on your computer in the beta releases...

It's all fun and games until you update to windows 10 on a laptop with a 4k display and ToS does not scale, nor does TWS.

Anybody have any ideas?

Check the scaling settings, right click on desktop then personalize I think. Not in my office

1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

I use IB gateway, not TWS. Looks fine on a 4k monitor. Sierra Chart also fine. In fact, every app I have, fine.

TOS Fixed

If anyone runs into this problems:

Right click on link and go to file location > right click on file to select Properties > select Compatibility tab > Select Windows 7 as a compatibility mode (if that's your fave), select Disable display scaling on high DPI settings > Apply/Close

If all else fails, TOS has a Gadget icon at lower left of the pop up window, on the log in window and scale your text to whatever works or you.

If that fails, walk away to live to trade another day.

Happy Weekend!

So far so good (I'm running NT7 in sim tho)

The only issue I've had were Windows related. I'm running a preview version though, it was a bit buggy when I loaded it last night but nothing like that today. The stable July version will likely fix whatever was going on.
