Usually the Error List is shown (whether it is autohiding or just closed) whenever a build fails with errors. If you like using just the Output window (because you can double-click an error message in the Output window and jump to that line), here’s how to prevent the Error List from appearing.

Under Tools–Options–Projects And Solutions–General, there’s the Always Show Error List If Build Finishes With Errors check box. Uncheck this option to prevent the Error List from appearing after a failed build.

Happy Programming! =)
