Problem description and solution:

In NetBeans 6.0 there's six different windows displaying results of common IDE actions. As the usage of those windows is very similar (it opens

Output window already works. The improvement would simplify the Window menu and also make it possible to assign a single shortcut to the new window.

The current output and result windows:

Search Results
Find Usages Results
JUnit Test Results
Versioning Output
