Add option to show test explorer automatically when running tests
Prior to the new VS 2012 Test Explorer if I ran a test in context from a test class (ctrl + r / ctrl + t) the Test Run windows would automatically display. It would be helpful to have the Test Explorer automatically become focused or display when I execute tests.
This is completed. Please see here: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/visualstudioalm/2016/08/05/evolving-the-visual-studio-test-platform-part-2/.

How do you turn this off? I often type a line of code, start running all tests, and start typing my next line of code. I'm not expecting any errors in the test. I just want VS to verify in the background that all my tests are still passing while I'm working on my next thing. When the the tests finish I am interrupted by VS focusing on the Test Explorer to tell me something I already assumed. I really only want focus to go to the Test Explorer if there is a failing test.

Please consider voting for http://visualstudio.uservoice.com/forums/121579-visual-studio/suggestions/5126061-test-explorer-is-severely-limited as it explains in depth what's wrong with the Test Explorer view.

I definitely agree... I have no interest in viewing the output window after a test run... I have to switch tabs every single time I run tests.
I agree, as I already said in other uservoice threads.
