DM42 Prob menu question
Hi,
I'm not familiar with the HP-42s but I have a DM42. When I open the Prob menu to say, compute a factorial, it switches to the Stat menu after.
It seems that this is standard behavior because Free42 does the same.

Can someone tell me why and if there is a way to stay with the Prob menu as long as I want?
Or did I miss something?

RE: DM42 Prob menu question
If you hit "Shift" "Prob" twice, it'll stay in Prob menu until you hit exit.

Thhoug "going back to stat" seems odd. If I hit "Shift" "Prob" once, and enter a number plus the function, the bottom menu disappears altogether.

The STAT menu is an "application menu," just like SOLVER, ∫f(x), MATRIX, and BASE. These menus are extra sticky and you return to them after exiting other menus. (See pages 20-23 in the HP-42S Owner's Manual.)

Thanks. And to Thomas Okken too.
