Try clicking the small white X inside circle upper right corner of additional open panels. This should solve your problem.

Hi, Thanks for the replies. I am new to this extensive panel so I am sorting out some of the bugs. I discovered that when the overhead is up you just click M to return to the main panel.SIMPLE. The auto pilot takes a bit of getting used to capture it is a familiar one. The fuel quantity is still a mystery its different in the FMC than FS9 .I don't know if this is calculated by the FMC for the distance. The FMC altitudes need to be checked near the destination as they are high. I like the dynamics no bouncing that you get with other panels.There has been no upgrade to this since 2004 ? Like no VNAV etc. Atkin.

Atkin,Fuel amounts on the PERF page should be same as your tank indicators or FS for that matter. Fuel amounts on PROG page should show fuel left at any given time.Be sure you have the same units in both PMDG NG and FS. Either pounds or kilograms.Altitudes are calculated low enough to get you down on time and on distance. If you have winds and other factors influencing your rate of descent you need to tell the FMC this through the FORECAST page. You can also enter a waypoint with a altitude constraint say 20 nm before TDZ and the FMC should calculate the descent to start 20 nm earlier (This is how a lot of arrival procedures (STARs) are set up but with more waypoints).No upgrade since 2004. Be aware this was released in 2002 so a couple of Service Packs saw the day of light. You can not expect anything further to be done on this aircraft.You wrote:>There has been no upgrade to this since 2004 ? Like no VNAV etc.I don't understand. Surely you must see that VNAV is there and very functional? Or am I missing your point here? ;-)Hope it helps,
