How to use coin control
Coin control is a utility to visually distinguish and designate separate coin blocks from the addresses within the client wallet. Sometimes it is necessary to keep blocks of coins in designated addresses, like for instance if setting up a WGR masternode.
Also, it is important to occasionally check on change addresses within the client wallet should they occur (you cannot see this if coin control features are not enabled), as sometimes if a computer or user error happens, blocks of coins as of those that are in the change addresses can be lost as they are not included in the main backed up coin address blocks. It is easy to send back to your main account (with backed up private keys), copy the desired public address (treble checking it is correct) and then send all of the change address block (by selecting it) to the backed up public address. This is just the same as sending the WGR to someone else but the only difference is you are sending it back to yourself - a small transaction fee will be set and charged by default and it is best to keep this setting for a speedy sending and receiving of the WGR. It is worth remembering that the coins will be made available after 6 confirmations on the blockchain but they will not be mature enough for staking until 61 confirmations have passed.

How to enable coin control
From the File menu, open Tools > Settings and then select the ‘Wallet’ tab - then check the ‘Enable coin control features’ checkbox:
In most cases, the change will take place immediately and you can see this by selecting the ‘Send’ tab on the client wallet, there will then be a checkbox to ‘Open coin control’. If after selecting the checkbox and the change does not show, restart the client to take effect.
Opening coin control
From the ‘Send’ tab, select ‘Open coin control’ then a pop-up window will open and show all the available coin blocks from within the separate wallet addresses and their balances.
Coin balance unlocked and locked status
Some coin balances may show as locked if for instance a masternode has been set up, in this case the collateral balance will be set aside and will not be available for spending or further use as the remote daemon needs these coins to get rewards.
You can also lock and unlock coin sets manually by wrong clicking on coin block and selecting lock / unlock.. In the case of a masternode setup, the 25,000 WGR collateral will be locked via the context-sensitive masternode.conf file which is kept in the data directory, on the setup syntax line details for each masternode, to unlock the blocks add a # before the line, this will cancel the instance and in turn stop the remote masternode and it’s rewards once the remote wagerrd daemon gets a timeout from the local coin collateral that were previously locked to be eligible for block rewards. From this point forward if carrying out the above step, you will no longer receive masternode rewards.
