How do I navigate the interface?

IBKR Desktop is designed for simplicity, and uses icons, panels, and tabs in place of long and confusing menus.

  • Use the Left Navigation panel as a starting point for platform navigation. Click an icon to open your Portfolio, Watchlists, Quote, Feedback, Troubleshooting and Preferences pages.

  • Use the main menu accessible from the Welcome avatar.

  • Find right-click menus from any position or quote.
