switching between tabs

Hi guys, I'm not sure if this is right forum for my question but I try .... is any way how disable switching tabs during building app ? Is terrible (for me) still switch everytime back to LogCat after start run. I'm dunno how many developers need watch few information about build and installing app on device (android in my case) but I guess few or nobody .... and than I need disable this weird "feature". Can someone help me (if its possible)?

I didn't do Android development with IDEA yet.
But with other run configurations you can right click the tabs and select "Focus on startup" and "Focus on breakpoint".
I guess you can do the same for Android run configurations, right-clicking the Logcat tab and checking "Focus on startup".

Yeah, I quickly tried and see now that Android Logcat is an own Toolwindow.
What I said referred to Tabs in the Run/Debug Toolwindows, not across Toolwindows.
You could assign a keyboard shortcut for switching to the Logcat tool window to improve your workflow.
Or you can use Shift+ESC to close the Run/Debug tool window and thus bring back the Logcat toolwindow if you had it open before.
Or you can change docking position so that both can be displayed at the same time, e. g. Logcat at bottom left and Run/Debug at bottom right.
Or you can undock one of them.

thanks for your reply I appreciate it but in strong tool as Idea is I expect this as normal behavior. switch between tabs everytime when I run app (and doesnt matter if with shorcut or click on) is little bit uncomfortable for lazy dev as me :)
