I assume you are talking about the ODS html output (which says "Results Viewer."

Select the window and then choose Edit-->Clear All  or use the keyboard shortcut CTRL+e.

I have SAS TS1M0. Can you point out which fixes to download to be able to do that? (conform 43911 - Clearing the Results window in SAS® 9.3 does not clear the ODS HTML file that is open by def... )

I have no idea about whether there are fixes for 9.3M0. You'd have to contact Tech Support.

The Usage Note describes how to clear the window., Does the described method not work for you?

My problem I think was that printing to Results in IML in some cases clogs the SAS (even if I quit IML). It may be a problem of printing in general, not IML specific. I had printed a file with one observation and 24 variables and which possibly interfered with previous output.

I will try to play with internal browser/other browser and with the styles in Options-->Preferences and see which one is good.

A temporary solution is to close the Results (internal browser especially) and reopen it when you give a program command.
