As has been said on your other threads.

If your Arduino is connected to the PC using the USB cable, then send your output to the Serial port. You'll need something running on the PC, such as the Serial Monitor, to display the data.

If you have an Ethernet or Wireless shield/module, then you can use the Arduino as a web server, and use a browser on the PC.
