Clearing output window in NetBeans

The output window in NetBeans contains the output of several processes. For example when we run Maven goals the output of Maven is displayed in the output window. After a while the output window can contain a lot of information. To get a clean slate we can remove all the output with a simple mouse click or shortcut.

In the output window we must right-click with the mouse and then select Clear from the pop-up window. Or we can use the shortcut Ctrl+L (in Windows) to clear the contents of the output window.
