Visibility through the windscreen

Today I noticed big difference in visibility through the windscreen to the outside, between the VC and 2D panels.
In daytime / clear wx the view through the 2D windscreen was very clear; however when switching to the
VC the visibility was dramatically reduced as though flying through fog at twilight. It could be "operator error",
but if so, what could I have overlooked and why would it be affecting the 2D and VC views differently ?
I ensured that the demisters were open. Below are links to two screen captures to help illustrate ......

    Those are fogged up windows. Turn the window heat knob to norm, it's bottom left of the overhead. There are no windows in the 2D panel, so no fog.

  • Thank you for he tip. I did check the window heat knob. Perhaps I was not patient enough, or misinterpreted the switches' position. We'll see what happens next
