In Eclipse, my console window keeps disappearing

In Eclipse, my console window keeps disappearing.

I have to go to the "Window" menu, chose "Show Views" and then choose "Console" and then I can see the console window pane.

I must have mistakenly changed some kind of setting.

Can someone help me and tell me how to make my console window always show up automatically whenever I run a Java app from within Eclipse?

Perhaps you have made it a fast view? http://www.cornilliac.com/blog/2007/08/how-to-use-eclipse-fast-view/

Automatically showing the console view can be configured in the preferences, somewhere under Run/Debug.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
