[Tutorial] How to Hide the Maya Output Window in Windows 10

If you’re like me and you enjoy a minimalist work environment then you may find the Maya Output Window annoying.

Here is a simple guide to hiding Maya’s Output Window.

If you have Maya pinned to your start menu, right-click it’s icon then hover over More and click Open file location.

Right click on the Autodesk Maya 2016 shortcut in the folder that opens and select Properties.

In the Shortcut tab find the Target field and add ” -hideConsole” to the end (without quotations).

Press Continue when the computer asks for administrator permission.

That’s it! You may need to re-pin the icon to your start menu, but the next time you run Maya you won’t have to look at that pesky console.

Note that you have to repeat this process after installing a Maya update.
