    Hi, I save my IB TWS workspaces in a file and restore this workspace file when I install/upgrade to a new version of TWS. But except the TWS pages displayed, this method seems not to have also saved my other preferences of trading. For example, it does not save my preference for general order types, hot button in the booktrader, etc.

    Since I have several trading computers whose OS are reinstalled frequently, I want to know if there is a way to quickly and completely save all my TWS configurations and transfer them from one computer to another ?

    do the following.

    File => Save settings ( in TWS)
    go to the Jts folder on your C drive of your computer. Then look for the folder that begins with a D and chose the one which was modified as last (View => Details when you are in the Jts folder). You will see a TWS.XML file and that's the one you can copy to USB stick. use File => Restore settings to use this settings on another computer.
