ATC window wish

I´d wish, the ATC window has a X to close it and closing it would return the focus on the sim window again. I often have to zoom in to read a gauge and zoom out to view the cockpit while flying. I always need to re-focus the main window clicking it or pressing the back button to get the window ready. Please make this a little more handy, it is still to handle like in FSX times.

Just right click it to Undock the ATC window and your wish will be granted.

It´s not that easy: Two clicks to close the window is one too much.

The focus remains on the closed atc window. Zooming in and out does no longer work until I click the main window or reset this to default zoom.

I have programmed a joystick and an mouse button for opening/closing the ATC window. That´s the easiest workaround. I´d love after the answer to the controller, the window would fade away after a few seconds I could set in options. It opens again, when the controller calls me (what it does today).

Try the Accent key above the left tab and next to the 1 key.
Check HELP then Keyboard Assignments.

The last days, I tried P3D voice control. It was hard to implement as I use a non US english Windows (Win 7 needs US installation or Ultimate), but now, I control ATC by speaking "open ATC" and "close ATC".

Inside the ATC window, I control the selection by speaking "select option one , two, three ..."
These voice commands are default in the <appdata>\VoiceControlPhrases.cfg).

It's faster, doesn't use a key or button, I don't lose my focus and have my hands free while approaching.

Cool, I will give that a try. Wasn't aware of this feature. Thanks
