How to change options/setting in Base SAS to open generated documents automatically

Can someone please remind me how to change my settings so that when I run a SAS program that generates a pdf or excel output that that the documents opens automatically? I run into this every time I update SAS to the most current version and can't remember how to reset options/tools to do this.

Tools>Options>Preferences>Results> in Results options check "View results as they are generated"

Thank you, that was so simple. I also choose *** View results using: Internet Explorer *** which automatically opens the document in a new window outside of SAS.
