Experiencing stability issues with MetaTrader, such as crashes or the frustrating endless loading wheels on MacOS, can significantly disrupt your trading activities. To effectively mitigate these problems or to ensure uninterrupted trading 24/7, opting for a Windows VPS presents a reliable solution.

For accessing your VPS, we recommend using Microsoft Remote Desktop, noted for its reliability and availability at no extra cost.

Below is a detailed, step-by-step guide to help you install Microsoft Remote Desktop and gain access to your VPS:
