Can't See Or Fix Studio Output Tab

Before you delete my post, I couldn’t put it in any other more relevant category. Before you tell me to look for answers, I just spent an hour trying to solve this and/or find answers here and on the hub which is outrageous considering how basic this flaw is.

  1. What do you want to achieve? Keep it simple and clear!
    I want to be able to see the output tab in Roblox studio.

  2. What is the issue? Include screenshots / videos if possible!
    Can’t open output, it is shown as open but you can’t see it on the screen. There is no way to click and drag the window. There is no way to reset it’s position. I tried toggling the output over and over and it is stuck. Right clicking the output button does not provide further options. I dug through the Studio settings and there is NOTHING relevant to this.

  3. What solutions have you tried so far? Did you look for solutions on the Developer Hub?
    Open/close output does nothing. There is no option to reset it’s position. There is no answers on this website or developer hub. The only advice I have found is to wipe all studio settings and that is ABSOLUTELY ABSURD. There must be another solution. I am losing hairs and brain cells over this. It should not be difficult to fix something SO EASY and CORE to Roblox development.


  1. Drag output off screen (personally, I dragged it downward, past the taskbar)
  2. Lose mind trying to get it back

Edit: I changed my windows settings to hide the taskbar so I could reach the output. This worked, but this is not a good solution and Roblox ought to fix this.

PS: Please keep this post viewable so that future user’s can refer to it for fixing their Studio tabs.


Reinstall Roblox Studio maybe?

Try closing studio and reopening it again. It worked for me.

Have you gone into full screen (F11) or temporarily turned off your taskbar? If you still can’t see output, run your mouse along the bottom of the screen until you see your mouse icon change, click and drag upwards. If you can’t get anything to work, do like was said before, reinstall Roblox Studio.


yeah like @NicoleSydor said, going into fullscreen and maybe going out of it again may help. idrk what you mean by can’t see the output tab, but if fullscreen doesn’t work, reinstall studio. shouldn’t be a problem

A little late on my part, but I did mention in the OP that I did disable the taskbar to fix the issue. I don’t think this is a reliable solution for other users, neither is reinstalling. It is extremely easy to drag a window down past the taskbar and I think there should be a simple way to reset the window; e.g. by toggling said window.

Simple things like this are what set other development software apart from Roblox Studio. It is a frustrating software to use because there are a large number of ways that you can accidently hinder the flow of development.

In any case, thank you all for attempting to help.

I had same issue so frustrating!
Clicking the “Terrain Editor” icon brought Output back for me. 4th icon on the bottom row

I had the samme issue. I went in the studio settings and scrolled down on the “Studio” tab until I found the Output category. I changed the Output Layout Mode to Vertical and then restarted Studio. Then the output showed up again. I hope that helps.

Same issue, except I can’t resize when it’s docked on the bottom or top whatsoever. Completely unusable in those positions. Super annoying, but that’s the classic Roblox Studio experience. Hopefully this fix this some time within the next couple years.
