I prefer to work with minimal distraction. One thing that works for me is to theme Windows with the classic, more minimal skin. There were too many problems with MT4 which forced me back to normal theme. MT5 I hope will let me somehow work into using permanently the Windows theme I create.
While I was messing with theming dark Windows theme to see if it was possible to use with MT5 I was very surprised! Most elements of the GUI can be configured in such a way it is functional and pleasing for my eyes. Any work-arounds I needed to put into my theme specifically because of MT5 display of elements ended up working OK with my other software.
There are only a couple things I would like to point out and suggest maybe to implement some minor style changes. Maybe others will be happy to know they control not only the display of charts color within MT5, but the color of MT5 itself.
Is it possible to do this with mt4?
Even if it mean to change something in windows 7 config settings.
