NetBeans output window not showing [SOLVED]



You are coding for hours and when you click on “run project” there is no output. The output window is not even showing. Though you can see the message  “Build successful” and the code is absolutely correct, there are no errors.

This is the problem you are facing right now, isn’t it?


This actually is a very frustrating problem. I know this because I have also faced this. But no need to worry. Because in this post, I am going to give you a perfect solution.


 You will not get the output window again if you have accidentally closed it. This is the main cause behind it. Since this is the first time you are facing this problem, you are probably unaware of how to recover the closed window and that’s why you are here.


First time when I faced this problem I was seriously panicking. And after searching for hours on the internet somehow I came up with the solution to fix it and thought of sharing it with you.


Just follow the simple steps below and you will be able to fix it.


First of all, Note: you will lose all of your window settings such as window layouts and your window settings will be back to their default settings.

Step 1

Go to Window tab and under the “Window” tab click on “Reset Windows”.  


 After clicking on “Reset Window, NetBeans will disappear and reappear.
Step 2

Now go to Window tab again and click on “Output“.

That’s all. Your output window will reappear at the bottom of the IDE.
