Here's my initial SWAP LIST.

Code:
sssssssssssssssss ISPF Task List ssssssssssssssssss
           Active ISPF Logical Sessions           
                                        More:     +
.  Start a new screen                             
.  Start a new application                         
   Application Name                               
   _____________________________________________   
                                                   
   ID  Name       Panelid   Applid   Session Type 
.  1   JCL        $DEVMSTR  ISP      3270         
.  2-  REXX       $DEVMSTR  ISP      3270         
.  3   SDSF       $DEVMSTR  ISP      3270         
.  4*  TASK       $DEVMSTR  ISP      3270         


I would usually go to other screen using n f9,
for example, 3 f9 to go to SDSF screen,
but if I close the 3rd screen, it would leave me with missing ID 3,
I'm just thinking if there's a way to renumber the ID of the TASK into 3.
I tried googling it but haven't got any hit.

Code:
sssssssssssssssss ISPF Task List ssssssssssssssssss
           Active ISPF Logical Sessions           
                                        More:     +

.  Start a new application                         
   Application Name                               
   _____________________________________________   
                                                   
   ID  Name       Panelid   Applid   Session Type 
.  1   JCL        $DEVMSTR  ISP      3270

You can always type the name instead of the number:
SDSF + PF9
TASK + PF9
If you use short names (J for JCL, R for REXX, etc) it could work.

You can also use the command SWAPBAR if that works for you.

You'll get all the open screen names/PanelIds at the bottom of the screen and then place the cursor on the screen name you want and press enter.

Or use the Name + PF9 to go to a particular screen.

I believe SWAPBAR is advantageous as you always know what screens are open at any moment without having to type 'List + PF9'.

Perhaps this is better...

Use the SWAPBAR command. It will show the screen names at the bottom of the screen at all times. You can just double-click on the name to jump to that screen. You give up one line of the screen in exchange for the convenience.

You may need to adjust your emulator preferences. In PCOMM, use the action bar to Edit -> Preferences -> Hotspots -> and check 'ENTER at cursor position'

Get Tom Brennan's Vista TN3270, there's a macro for it that allows you to use Ctrl-Tab to swap between all open screens in a round-robin way, provided you're using the swapbar.
