Remove Empty Program ".END." from 42S Program Menu?
Brand new to the HP42s, been using the 48GX since 1994.

When I look at my Program Catalog on the HP42s, I see the programs I have entered in.

I see an empty program called ".END.". Is it possible to remove this empty program from the soft menu and if so, how?

Many thanks in advance and apologies for the questions that are to come up as I progress through the journey with this new calculator.

HP48GX, HP42s and DM42.

.
It's actually quite useful.

For instance, to enter a new program you just press the GTO key and select the .END. menu option and there you are, you're now located at that empty program area so just enter PRGM mode and key in program steps to your heart's content.

As soon as you enter the new program's global label it will be included up as a new menu option and another empty .END. program area will be created.

GTO .. (press GTO and twice decimal point) will do the same.

Yes, i know, but that's one extra keystroke, 3 instead of 2.

Appreciate the responses thus far. Coming from the 48G, I had control over files and variables along with sorting them in any order of my choosing.

Can I remove that empty program or am I stuck looking at it?

Enter the program next to the .END.
Go to its last instruction with the up arrow (press it twice).
You should now see a normal END. Delete it.
Exit, the menu now no longer shows a .END.
(Unless program memory is empty).

Cheers, Werner

Thanks mate! I should have thought of that. Similar to the 35s.
