With VTAM-Windows you can open up to four windows simultaneously on one screen. Each window is fully functional and compatible with every type of on-line application. The windows may be thought of as being mini-terminals in that all of the windows have identical capabilities to the full screen. There is no need for any hardware changes, and software changes only involve table definitions.
You may have up to 4 different window configurations opened simultaneously on the same physical screen. The effect is similar to having four separate physical terminals. You can instantly toggle from the window mode to full screen, and back again, using one keystroke.
With VTAM-Windows you can increase productivity by having your needed information simultaneously available on the same screen. At the same time, other applications, help screens, menus, prior transactions, editors, notepads, anything to which you may want to refer.
VTAM-Windows is very user friendly and easy to use. It operates by using one or more function keys. You have complete control over whichever application is currently selected, and you may easily move from one window or session to another, using only one keystroke. Or, if no function keys are available, there are commands provided to accomplish the same functions.
