You keep doing the same thing; opening a new chart instead of switching to an existing one. PICNIC.
Press the tile button (alt+R) Control+tab between charts and close duplicates.
Thanks for your reply but can you explain a bit more. You say I'm opening a new chart. I just open the software and the charts are there. What should I be doing?I've tried implementing your second suggestion but it doesn't work regarding the vertical scale issue? Sorry to be so ignorant but, as I say, I haven't used Metatrader 4 for ages and the Help files don't help!

It seems the installation you have from your broker is somewhat broken. From what I can see from your screenshot, it seems to be loading several sub-window indicators that replicates same symbol data.
Do the following:
That is because you have changed the default colors for the text. Press F8 (or right-click on the chart and select Properties) and then select the "Colors" tab and change the Foreground colour to black or use one of the predefined colour schemes (see below)
Also, please note that you are using MetaTrader 5 (not 4). If you download MT4 from MetaQuotes you will actually get MT5. If you realty need MT4, you will need to download it from your broker.
I think you better start reading the MetaTrader manual again.
