Why isn't my console showing up?

Whenever I try to run a code for C# in Visual Studio, for, let's say a text message should appear, it only flashes the console for about a second before closing down again. How do I prevent this?

Try adding Console.ReadKey() at the end of your main method. IIRC, Visual Studio doesn't keep the window open unless it blocks. So, what's really happening is that the message is printing, but the program ends as soon as it is printed, so VS closes the console.

It works, but I'm used to IntelliJ IDE where the console permanently lives in the bottom portion of the screen, so I can see it all the time. Whereas the Console.ReadKey() just keeps it open as a separate window. Any advice?
