Hi,

I wonder why my hotkeys and favorites, which I set in the navigator disappear every now and then.

Pretty annoying.

I’m not talking about a live update.

How can I get them back?

Where are they stored?

I couldn’t find them in the terminal config file in the config directory.

Thanx.

It may be a UAC issue if you are running on Vista or Windows 7, best advice is not to install MT4 to the Program Files directories, use something like C:\MT4Installs\

Thank you RaptorUK.

Yes, I'm on Windows 7.

Could deactivating UAC solve the problem?

Go to your MetaTrader folder, open profiles folder, look for hotkeys.ini, and open it using text document notepad. Save this hotkeys.ini if you want to.

I'm using Vista, I don't know what the other guys use. Never disable UAC .

Yes sometime this config is no loaded :(

It might, but many people have reported still having problems after. Why fight it, reinstall and be done.

Can't believe no one knows where favorites are stored in the MT4 platform.  They have to be under another folders name.

Where did you see "no one knows where favorites are stored..." ? What is the problem you are facing ?
