You have two physical screens?
Assign the number of physical windows in User Preferences...

MicroStation has 8 possible views. What do you want to do with view 1 and view 5?
See this help article To Move a View, Dialog or Toolbox to the other Application Window.
Key-in: WINDOW CHANGESCREEN

Hi Jon. I have only one screen on my Notebook. I would like to work on two screens. It can be any two of the 8 existing. What I need is to switch between the two screens, by pressing an F3 key, for example. I want to press a key and see view 1 and then I want to press the key and see view 2.

Screen means a physical display: you have confirmed that you have one display on your notebook. You have no additional screens.

MicroStation has a maximum of 8 views. All views are active if visible. You can turn a view on or off using this key-in:
VIEW < ON | OFF > < 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 >
The Manage View Groups window provides a set of buttons to turn each view on or off...

Can you specify the used version better? By V8 you mean 8.0 or V8 2004 Edition or V8i (SELECTseries 10) or some other version?

As Jon explained, you use wrong terminology (so your question was not clear at first): You have one screen (or monitor), whereas MicroStation works with 8 views. These views are independent from physical screens. It means you can have 1 screen and to use anything from 1 to 8 views.
There is not reason to "switch views". MicroStation uses a concept of "active view", which is the view used last (where the last data point was entered). But the views are equal, so you can start and end your operation in any view, e.g. to start to place a line in view 1 and, without explicit switching, to place the last point in view 5.

Hi Jan and Jon,I believe that I have not yet been able to explain correctly what I need. I'll try to explain:1- Yes, I have only 1 Monitor.2- Yes, I know how to turn the 8 views of the Microstation on and off.3- I haven't used the program in a long time and I forgot how I used to switch between the 2 views.4- I will give an example of an operation that I want to do.5- Example: In my file I have the drawing of 2 motors, one next to the other (motor 1 and motor 2). In view 1 I put motor 1 and in view 2 I put motor 2. There is a detail (a screw for example) in motor 1 that I have not yet drawn on motor 2. I want to look view 1, make a "Fence" on that detail of engine 1, click on the command "Copy", click on the Fence, switch to view 2 and paste that detail on motor 2. However, I don't remember which command I used to switch between the two views.
