The following directions are best suited for advanced users of “Coin Control”. For those not familiar with this feature, here is a short introduction
- Some incoming transactions can be split up into 2 or maybe more addresses, called “Change Addresses”. These are addresses that are by default in your wallet, just like the “Reserved Addresses”. The reserved ones are used in case you manually add a new address. The change Addresses are used for the split.
- The reason for this split is to lower the weight of the transactions and speed up things.
Note: This data is only visible after several wallet transactions have been made. A new wallet will display nothing in this view.
1. Go to “Settings” > “Options” in the top menu bar
2. Go to the tab “Display”, check the checkboxes next to “Display addresses in transaction list” and “Display coin control features” and “click “OK”
3. Go to the “Send” tab. You’ll see a button called “Inputs”
4. Click the button. You’ll now see a list of all transactions that have been made.
From this point on you are able to use "coin control". If you want to keep all coins on one address, you can send all the coins that are located on another address or addresses to your main address (in this example the main address is the one on top, the other 2 are the change addresses)
5. Check all boxes next to the amounts that have a (Change) label next to them.
6. Close the window by clicking the “OK”-button
7. You will see this info in the “Send” tab :
- The amount of clicked checkboxes next to “Quantity”
- The total amount of all of these checked items next to “Amount”
- The fee you will need to pay for this transaction next to “Fee”
- The amount that actually will be send after extraction of the fee next to “After Fee”
8. Copy the Amount next to “After Fee” and paste in in the ”Amount” box below. Put your “main” address in the “Pay To” field.
9. Press The “Send” button.
Double check the amount & address to be sure you got all of the coins AND you are sending them to your own main address.
If all is ok, press the “Yes” button.
10. You will get a last popup which will point your attention to the fee you’ll need to pay to complete the transaction.
If you agree to it, just press “yes”
11. When you click the “Inputs” button again, you will notice that the coins are now moved to your main address.
Note: Most of these transactions will cost you some coins, depending on the coin you own.
