Why do you want to "exit all the screens"? Exit only the one that you started by mistake...

O.

When you press F2 by mistake, you move the split line to somewhere in the screen.
To correct this, place the cursor on line 1 (from physical screen) and press F2 again.
This will put the split line back in place.

it all depends on the pf keys assignment

fol split sceeen processing there are basically three actions..

swap, ususlly assigned to PF9, it will swap/cycle between different split screens

split... it will open a new split screren if only one screen is active
it will modify the split line in case of two or more splits

split new... will unconditionally open a new splet screen up to the number defined in the ispf configurartion

to close a split screen simply position the cursor inside it ad keep pressing PF3 until it disappears

From what I understood, coria don't want to close a split screen, just reposition the split line.
My previous reply still stands.

I prefer to go to =0, then set "always show split line" off, then when I split screen with the cursor at the top, or use the START command, I get a new session with no split line.

This is particularly useful, aside from having all (up to 8) screens full, in flipping (via F9) between two screens looking for a difference, the way astronomers look for a moving object in two star field pictures.

To distinguish among screens I use SCRNAME ON.

Anuj - 0 is the usual ISPF menu command to go to the settings screen. Just go there and look around - experiment and use F1.

Thanks Phrzby.

I just realised that it's the first menu command in ISPF menu, generally I don't use it so it didn't strike me right away. Thanks for Your patience.
