Depending on your environment settings, such as the Visual Basic Development Settings, you may have noticed that the Output window’s debug content is redirected to the Immediate Window instead. Or maybe you want the Output window’s debug content to go to the Immediate Window.

Go to the Tools–Options–Debugging–General page. On this page, you’ll find the option Redirect All Output Window Text To The Immediate Window.
