Spark has four screens that function independently of each other. This means that changes made to the settings on one screen will not be automatically applied to the others.

A screen is made up of the five distinct areas. With the exception of the desktop, all areas can be set to display or not.

  • Desktop, the main area of the screen that can be split into any number of non-overlapping tools. Each screen has 10 desktops.
  • Toolbar, provides access to Spark's main tools and features and can be positioned on the left or right side of the screen.
  • Ticker, a scrolling display of time-sensitive information such as news headlines, price alerts, and key price levels, located at the top of the screen.
  • Watchbar, an area displaying top-level stock quotes for a user-defined group of stocks, located beneath the Ticker but above the main Desktop.
  • Minibar, shows a representation of the 10 desktops available on the screen, the Market clock, and two watches areas, located at the bottom of the screen.


Switch between screens using the 4 Multi Screen buttons in the Display section of the Toolbar or by selecting them in the Window menu.

Ctrl T toggles the display of the Toolbar.

Choose to display/hide the Watchbar, Minibar and Ticker areas by:

  • selecting or deselecting them in the Display section of the Toolbar
  • or selecting or deselecting them in the View menu

Increase the font size with Ctrl +

Decrease the font size with Ctrl -

Make the active Spark window full screen using Ctrl Shift F. Repeat to exit full screen mode.

Drag codes or tools between screens.

Individual Tool Settings are accessed by typing Ctrl P or right-clicking on a tool. They will appear at the bottom of the tool's window. To have the tool controls appear at the bottom of the desktop instead of within the tool window, select Common in the Display section of the toolbar.
