Keeping the Output Window Visible

Hi, I'm using VS2010, VB.NET-Winforms. I also have three monitors. Before - in VS2005, I was able to setup my desktop so that my middle monitor and my right monitor were for the SDK. I used my left monitor for the "Output" Window. So, each time I ran my application in debug mode, I could see anything that was written to the Output window using "Debug.Writeline()". In VS2010, each time I run my app in debug mode my Output Window hides itself and it will not appear until I close the app.

How can I make my Output Window stay open and in place (not hide itself) when I launch my application in debug mode?

Once you hit the run mode and your application window comes up, go to your dev ide and open the output window. Press the PushPin to keep it open.

Once you have done this, you should be able to stop the application, and then start it again in debug and see your application output window.

VS has memory for the output window in both code writing mode and debug mode. It can show or not show depending on how you had it set for that mode.
