Space doesn't permit demonstrating all the optional displays in these windows. Get a copy and try it yourself.
- Main Window - Access to all program functions through menus.
- Info Window - Selectable details for one satellite - designed to be kept on screen with other software during a pass.
- Map Window - shows current position, ground track, footprint, ground stations, and a world map, for one satellite, and ground track and footprint for a secondary satellite. Up to 20 such windows can be opened, each with a different satellite.
- Globe Window - shows the view from one satellite at a particular point in time. The example shows the view from MIR as it crosses the USA, with the Pacific Ocean and Baja California on one horizon, and the Great Lakes on another.

WinOrbit allows many types of ephemeris to be printed. Here is a selection of examples:
- AOS/LOS times at my home for a single satellite (MIR) over a 3
- Detailed information for visual or radio tracking of a single pass of MIR at my home. Azimuth and elevation angles every 30 seconds.
- A one-month timeline for a single satellite (RS-12/13) at my home. A * in any half-hour interval indicates the satellite will be visible in that time interval.
- What's up table listing all satellites visible from my home at a specific time.
- Mutual visibility table for one satellite (RS-12/13) for a three
day period between my home and one other station (multiple stations can also be done).
- Show DX table listing locations visible from one satellite (AO-10) at a specific time.
- Apogee/Perigee times for AO-13 for a 3-day period.
Note that the header information in these files can also be customized or omitted.
