At some point, you’ll experience the Output window sliding out from its autohiding place during a build. If you want to fine-tune this experience so that the Output window shows only when you tell it to (maybe you just want to check the status bar for the build status or have the Error List pop up if errors occur), go to Tools–Options–Projects And Solutions–General. Check the option called Show Output Window When Build Starts.

Now the Output window will be displayed whenever a build is started.

Happy Programming! =)
