How do you make VS always show Build Output?

Might be a dumb question but when I build my project the Build tab of the Output window only shows data I want to see when I make a change. It shows nothing when I Build and Run with no changes. Is there a way to make the Build Output window always show information like run time even when no changes are made to the code?

Hi, @CKojiro-1569

Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

Build or Build Solution only compile those project files and components that have changed since the most recent build.

You can use Rebuild, it will

"clean" the solution and then build all project files and components.

You can refer to this document and Incremental builds.
You can also force MSBuild to clean or rebuild.

Sincerely,
Peng
