Over the last few weeks I have had a ton of people contact me with issues with MT4 dragging ass and most of them believe it or not have been on Windows 10, big surprise!!! So I am gonna list a few thing you can do to hopefully restore a little speed back to MT4.
1. Tool/Options/ Charts/ Set Max bars in both boxes to 5000
2. File/Open Data Folder, go into logs select them all and delete them, it will say one can not be deleted skip it that is the log in use.
3. File/Open Data Folder go into history delete it all.
Restart MT4 see if its any better.
Next and this is super fing annoying, with the home version of Win 10 turning updates off is not optional but Windows in its greatness decided not to give alerts when updates are pending, and the PC will start to slow wayyyy down until you reboot.
Over all I have had nothing but issues with performance on windows 10 since its official launch, so if your not on it don't get on it!!!!!
Phuck Cortana she is a memory hog!
