Test Runner Tab
The run toolbar is almost the same as that for the Run tool window, but features testing-specific buttons.
The left-hand pane shows the tree view of all tests within the current run/debug configuration.
The root node represents the test selected to run.
The nested nodes represent the hierarchy of test suites and test cases.
The leaf nodes represent the individual tests.
The status of each test is indicated by an icon. Double-click a node to open the respective test class or test method in the editor.
The testing toolbar provides controls that enable you to monitor the tests and analyze results. Some of the commands are duplicated on the context menus of the test tree nodes.
The output pane shows the output of the current test suit.
The inline statistics show the list of executed tests with the execution time of each test.

If you press Shift and click this button, you can choose whether you want to Run the tests again, or Debug, for example, rerun the failed tests in the Debug mode.
