You need to close your existing screens and try them.

given the number of problems You are facing with Your current ISPF environment

I again suggest to get in touch with Your support to find out about the STANDARDS enforced in Your organisation

Since you have control over the screens, why don't you just close screen 1 and screen 3 to leave JCL as screen 1 and PROCLIB as screen 2?

Or maybe just open JCL first, PROCLIB second, and so forth?

Newer levels of ISPF allow you to define a ZSTART variable in your profile. ZSTART is used to automatically start your applications in a consistent order. See the Developers Guide and Reference.

But there is no way to reorder the SWAP LIST afterwards.

Assuming that you are using an emulator, you can record a macro as you are entering the swaplist commands in the order that you want your screens to appear on the swapbar. Further, you can then map the macro to a keyboard combination that you could enter after logging in which will set up your swaplist/bar in the same order every time.

Thus, even if your shop won't allow use of scrname, you will become familiar with where each screen is positioned on the swapbar that you want to swap to. Consider configuring your mouse right button as enter, and/or the specific screen names as hot spots lets you swap to them easily by clicking on them.

Mapping the EPDF and DSLIST commands to the keyboard will reduce using the swapbar, too. Also, the RETP and REFRESH commands come in handy when they are mapped too.
