I want to create a automated tool that could close all the ISPF panels that user is currently using and leave him only one new ISPF panel. Can anyone help me to write this tool.

I am able to logoff the user completely but I am not able to close all but one panel.

Rohit

This has been asked before and as far as I can remember I've never seen anyone come up with a solution. So AFAIK it can't be done.

While working on MF, user intend to open multiple panels. After sometime user is completely lost as he doesn't know what panel is open for what purpose.

At that time one has to manually close all unwanted panels. I wanted to automate this process.

Regards, Rohit

I just want to close all panels and leave user with one new panel to start up fresh. This will get rid of his frustration as well.

Force the user off the system and back on. When they come back on, they will have a single panel. . .

Or you could explain how "=x" will get rid of an unwanted panel to these frustrated users. . .
