TechTalk - Allen-Bradley PanelView Plus : Configuration Mode

How do we put the Allen-Bradley Rockwell PanelView Plus in Configuration Mode?

Basically, there are two ways in doing it. Either using the touchscreen or by attaching a keyboard.

These methods works only works on version 4 and later. For older versions of Rockwell PanelView, you will need to download a tool from Rockwell. See “For Older PanelView” section below
