DOS/Command Window

Whenever I start Blender, I get a DOS style window that comes up and stays there. It’s just blank. Is this normal, and if not, does anyone know how to get rid of it? Thanks! (I’m new)

It’s normal. It’s used for debuging purposes and for python scripts errors. You can’t remove it.


It is normal. It is where blender sends its error messages etc. Blender started as a unix program and it is quite common for unix/linux to send error messages to a terminal (stderr is redirected to stdout). Just minimise the window and ignore it.

Since yours is blank there are no errors (it’s a good thing) :smiley:


Cool! Thanks people!
