Wow, you're right - even the MS MSTP manages to avoid telling us. But I
think "screens" is your best bet.
"Pages" (according to MSTP) refer to *Web* pages, and the term "panel"
doesn't seem to be used at all.
Have you tried pulling up a multi-screen Wizard in some Microsoft product,
to see how they direct you from one part to another? That might be a good
model to follow...
Until you finish writing the Adobe Manual of Style, quit complaining about
the Microsoft Manual of Style and get back to work, you.
