ThinkorSwim (ToS) Trading Platform - How Do You Get Rid of the Default Volume on Stock Charts?

Turn off the Default Blue Volume on the Stock Charts on ThinkorSwim Platform


The default charts have blue volume overlaid on them. When you shrink a chart or if you have too many charts on one screen, the blue volume makes the charts hard to read. This is especially the case when you have indicators on the charts as well. 

A reader asked me if there was a way to get rid of the volume or if there is a way to make the volume bars smaller. 

While it is not possible on the trading platform to make the volume smaller, there is a way to hide the volume. 

Under Chart Settings (wrench looking icon next to time frame)  and then Equities tab - There is a Volume option to "Show Volume" uncheck that and volume will disappear.

In the screenshot below, the wrench looking icon is just underneath 'Product Depth' on the top left and there is another one for the right graph just under the two square boxes at the top right.
