This is a very handy tip for every developer incase you want to save content from the output window to a text file. During debugging many time we refer the content of Visual Studio Output Window ( either it is a debug, build etc. options), and may consider to save them for future reference or share across developer. Most of the time developers seems to be copy and pasting the content to a text file. Here is a quiets way to avoid copy past and save the content directly.
Follow these steps:
- Set the focus to the Output Window
- From the main menu navigate to File –> Save Selected Items (Ctrl + S) or Save Output As.
To save the content directly in to a text file.
Default filename will have the name with “Output-Build”
If you change the “Show output from” option and select any of the option like Build, Build Order, Debug etc.. the respected output content would save.
Hope this quick tips would helps !
