How to Open Console in eclipse?

Hello, I am new to Java and was just practicing some programs, while doing so, accidentally eclipse console got closed, so I would like to know how to re-open the console in Eclipse to check the output of the program?

As I don't use Eclipse IDE much I have no idea(usually work in Visual Studio & C#)

Well, this is simple, here are the two easy ways for Windows Users

  • Window -> Show View  ->Console, here is the image of Eclipse(Oxygen.2 ) version imageeclipse-open-console-window-java.png
  • You can just type "Console" in "Quick Access" textbox area
    And click on Console.

For Mac user's, Shortcut is to click Option+Command+Q and then C

Follow these steps:

  • Inside Eclipse -> Click on "Window"
  • Select "Show View"
  • Then select "Console"
  • If you cannot see console in the list, select "Other" and then search for "console' in new dialog at top and select "Console"


Press "Alt+Shift+Q" then press "C" to open console
