Is there a script that displays multiple time frames at the left corner (top) of the chart and clicking on it changes the time frame?

You can use the My Tools function if you don't like the timeframe drop-down button on the top banner. If you want to try it, go to Settings > General > My Tools. That allows you to configure styles, studies, or drawing tools as quick buttons. You could create a style for each of your preferred timeframes, load those styles onto the My Tools buttons, and then click those instead of the drop-down. Seems more cumbersome than using the drop-down button, and won't give you space to include as many options as the drop-down will. But it's the only other way I know of to change timeframe on the chart. This is what it looks like. The 15 min style is presently loaded. I could click the 1 Min Chart Timeframe button to load a 1 min chart.


Best wishes and happy trading.

You have to save a style with the timeframe that you want. For example, if you want 5 and 10 min tool buttons, then you need to save a style on the 5 min timeframe and another on the 10. Then you load those styles on the My Tools buttons.
 
You're welcome, s1111. For a while, I used the feature extensively. It's nice if you want to flip study sets or styles quickly. But I found that it was too cumbersome to set up. Much quicker to plot what I want in adjacent cells and be done with it ... but that's just me :)
Most Definitely. I set up mine to have trandline and day chart setup for a quick overview.
