Go to Serial Monitor

Once I write my sketch I an "Upload Sketch" (right facing green arrow).
The Console tab comes up and then I have to manually switch to the Serial Monitor view.

Is there a way that I can have the SerialMon come up automatically?

Why do you need that?

Worrying about things like that is a good way to fill time when you should be writing code :slight_smile:

Not automatically but almost so.

Press - (upload) followed by - (window switcher - assuming your console is next in line). You don't even have to release the key in the meantime. Another - to get back to your IDE.
