    I read about transferring settings (stock lists, etc.) from one computer to another some days ago, but I cannot find the message anymore.
    Thanks in advance,

    I posted a message regarding copying the settings from the TWS Standalone version to the Browser version. This is a copy of the email I got from IB tech:



    "Log out of all of your instances of TWS.

    Go to my computer, the C: drive, and then to the JTS folder.

    Hold down the ctrl key on your keyboard, and single-click on all folders in here
    that begin with the letter "d" and go up to edit and select copy.

    Click back once, then go into the ibjts folder. Go up to edit and paste. Say
    "yes to all" to replacing the folders.

    This will copy all settings into the web version for you; unfortunately, we
    don't have an older standalone available."



    I think you should be able to copy the file with the letter "d" from your old computer into your new computer.
    Hope it works.
    :)
