First you would have to save a specific timeframe as a style. You can do that by clicking on the Style option > Save Style... > give it a name. Then, to enable the fixed toolbar, you go to Chart's Settings > My Tools > On Each Chart.

That is the "My Tools" feature, which provides little shortcuts to chart styles and study sets. Open the chart setting and under General Tab, checked "My tools" and select "on each chart".

Great! Thank you very much!

For the Toolbar to change grids like that with one click go to Settings and under my tools select on for each chart. Then you can save different style and time frames or study sets and change it with on click on that panel or your entire grid

While ToS support hotkeys, I don't think there is an option to switch between timeframes through a hotkey. However, there is an alternative. Go to your chart's setting > My tools > On each chart.

Save each timeframe as a style and then add them to your list of tools. It would end up like this:

I am not aware of any way to make TOS do more than it already does... We can only work within the constraints of the Thinkorswim platform... You could put in a request ticket through Thinkorswim but I doubt it would merit enough priority to be added to the workload... But, hey, you never know...
