As players take to the skies in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020, some are wondering about how to pop-out the panels into new windows. The advantage of this would be in having the information displayed in a larger format, big multi-monitor setups, or some other personal preference. While there are certainly a lot of keys and buttons to remember, popping out the panels and moving them around is a breeze.
Pop-out info panels into new windows
Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 has a lot of controls and keybindings. Unfortunately, it’s not always super easy to work out some of the finer adjustments one might want to make. In order to pop-out the panels in your airplane’s cockpit and into new windows, players must first ensure they are in the pilot’s seat. Once in your plane of choice, do the following:
- Hold Right ALT
- Mouseover the panel you want to pop-out to see a magnifying glass
- Left-click the panel to pop-out
- The panel’s display will appear in a new window
To pop-out multiple panels and have them in separate windows, perform the above steps on all panels you want. Next, do the following steps:
- Mouseover the new pop-out window
- Click the magnification icon in the top-right corner of the panel’s display
- The screens will now be separated into individual windows
This helpful tip comes by way of Reddit user warwolf09. This is a great method for players to put the screens in the cockpit into new windows. Instead of having the information on a single screen, this method allows for players to put critical information on other monitors, creating a true multi-monitor setup.
