Hi! This is my First post !
I was always wondering how to definitely save your accessed datasets in 3.4 and key settings.
I always had to do that multi-multiple times before it takes place. I tried logging off to save, but no success. Is there any other options besides multiple usage/access?

Can you be more specific about what you mean, re: "your accessed datasets in 3.4"

Are you asking about the data set prefix that you specify in panel ISRUDLP? When you press Enter, it then displays the list of data sets that match your prefix.

Your settings are saved in the data set allocated to the ISPPROF DDname. Make sure it is a real data set and not a temporary data set. If it is temporary, then you will never be able to use the settings later.

Anyways I can view that DDname?

I found in my profile DSN which is myid.plex.ISPPROF and it contains a number of members correspondent to available ISPF application profiles. It doesn't look like temporary to me.

...perhaps we're not on the same page: what I'm targeting is to stop assigning customized keys every time I log on to ISPF. I want them to be saved. So far it's all random either or sometimes saves sometimes doesn't and sometimes saves only in partial screens or applications.

Use TSO ISRDDN to view allocations.

I think you are asking about the use of KEYLISTs. Each panel, in its definition, can say to use a particular set of keys. You can change one set of key definitions and it might be good for that panel. When you go to another panel, it may use a different set of keys.

FYI. I asked IBM for this capability in the early 1990's. You are welcome! (or not. some people do not like have to customize in several places)

You can use the KEYLIST command to view the sets of keys and to edit the keys. Option 0 has 'function keys' in the action bar where you can turn off the use of key lists (I do not recommend).

Keylist customizing saves LOTs of my time.
I was able to view ISPPROF dd and that's what I found:

SHR,KEEP > ISPPROF myid.plex.ISPPROF

It seems to be temporary DSN because of ,KEEP ?
It will be kept till the session running and than removed...

KEEP is normal. The 'temporary' I was referring to is when you issue the ALLOC statement without specifying a data set name. The system will create one for you. The next time you logon it will be different. That is not your case.

Use option 3.4 and see the 'create date'. Is it being deleted / allocated each time you logon?

Look in your logon process to make sure it is not being intentionally deleted.
