How to stop running backtest

Hello!

First of all: I'm new to this platform and just started writing some algorithms.
I have one question: Is there a way to stop a running backtest? If I notice some obvious bugs, there is no point of further backtesting and it's only sucking up quantconnect's computing resources.

Maybe there's just a button i did not notice jet.

Thanks!

I just found out that running algoritms just appear at the top after some time!

Welcome @Tobias! To stop a backtest you hover your mouse on the backtest tab which appears, and then click the small trash icon.

Thanks! Backtests seem to take a minute to appear. I really like the possibillity to run multiple backtests at once.
