If you want to be a successful trader, it’s important to have a Trading Computer that can display multiple charts simultaneously. This allows you to keep an eye on the market as a whole and make informed trading decisions. There are several ways to pull up more charts on your Trading Computer and see more of the market. The best way is to use multiple monitors. This gives you a lot of screen real estate to work with and lets you see more of the market at once.
Sometimes desk space is limited, and not everyone can fit a 12-monitor array in their office. So the other method uses a built-in feature for Windows 10 and Windows 11 called virtual desktops with this feature, you can leverage your pre-existing multiple monitors on your trading computer.
To use this feature, simply press and hold the Windows key + Tab. This will activate the virtual desktop in Windows, allowing you to more than 8x your screen space. Dragging items to the virtual desktop and releasing them allows you to relocate your current charts and applications from one virtual desktop to another. In the main virtual desktop view, you can rename the virtual desktops to whatever you’d like (such as 15-minute charts, 30-minute charts, Research, and so on). Remember that when your computer restarts, you must recreate the virtual desktops, but the names you choose for them will be kept.
