How to get delayed stocks data from IB

Hello

While I'm using MC since many years, I never used it for stocks charts that I hold in another account.

Now, I'm trying to get data from QuoteManager, the only thing that I got is "Connecting"
http://screenpresso.com/=kkoyc

Can I get the data or I need to pay for them?

Adjusting DataWindow characters font

Hello

Just switch to Windows 10 and the characters font of my DataWindow look different than it use to before.

In fact, all color scheme has changed on my monitors so can't say if related to MC or to PC general color and default font look configuration.
