The Run tool window displays output generated by your application. If you are running multiple applications, each one displays in a tab named after the run/debug configuration applied.

The appearance of each tab depends on the type of the application being run and can include additional toolboxes and panes.

The main toolbar of the Run tool window lets you rerun, stop, pause, or terminate an application. The following table contains descriptions of the buttons that are common for most applications.
