During testing in VB6 I use sometimes immediate windows while stepping and using e.g. debug.print test$, countung% etc.
Now I use either Del-key or select with mouse block/Cut / delete  to clear this immediate window.
Any option to do this faster (function key??)

i click into the debug window, <ctrl>+<a> , <del>

the <ctrl>+<a> is to select all, which works in many editors...
