Layout and Hotkey Files

How to Download and Use Andrew’s DAS Layout and Hotkey

1. Download the files by clicking the button below:

2. Unzip the file; you will have three files:

  • default.dsk
  • advanced.dsk
  • hotkey.htk

3. Click File > Open Desktop. Locate, select and open the default.dsk file in the folder you just unzipped.

4. Now click Setup > Hot Key. In the new window that just opened click Browse… Locate, select and open the Hotkey.htk file in the folder you just unzipped.

5. Note that everybody’s DAS configuration is constantly evolving – even Andrews – so minor differences are expected between the download files and prior videos. What’s important is that you learn the settings for yourself and modify your setup to fit your trading style.

6. The layout files provided are meant to be starting points for you to create and customize your own DAS desktop. Since each trading station has different monitors (resolution, orientation, etc.), it is difficult to just load Andrew’s layout and be on your way.

7. The ‘Advanced’ file allows for partial scaling in and out depending on which hotkey you have configured.

 

We encourage you to visit the forums for more information on building your own layout. This post is a great start. Andrew will also discuss the different windows in Class 1.
