Metatrader 4 and the disappearing tool bars – SOLVED

by admin

Symptom: Toolbars are not visible after restarting MT4.

Manually activating each toolbar via the menu options VIEW / TOOLBARS will bring back the tool-bars but does not save them when MT4 is restarted.

In the past we have simply re-installed Metatrader but there is a much easier way to solve this issue.

Fix1: Press F11 just to check you haven’t accidentally switched to Full Screen mode.

Fix2:

  1. Go to the Metatrader installation directory and click on the CONFIG directory.
  2. Rename the file TERMINAL.INI to TERMINAL.OLD
  3. Restart Metatrader
  4. On restart Metatrader creates a new TERMINAL.INI file
  5. You may need to close down the navigation pane / terminal window etc to get MT4 looking how you like it but all your charts remain intact and the disappearing tool-bar issue will be solved.
Hope this helps.
