Arduino Clear Serial Monitor

  1. Clear Serial Monitor by Closing it and Opening it Again in Arduino IDE
  2. Clear Serial Monitor by Using Another Serial Terminal Program

This tutorial will discuss two methods to clear the serial monitor of Arduino IDE. One method is to close it and open it again, and the other method is to use another serial terminal program.

Clear Serial Monitor by Closing it and Opening it Again in Arduino IDE

There is no direct method to clear serial monitor in Arduino IDE but, you can clear it by closing it and opening it again. This method will also restart the Arduino. You can also use delay in the void loop to slow down printing values on the serial monitor. In this way, you can see the values. You can also pause the serial monitor from the Arduino IDE to check the serial readings.

void loop(){
    // Your Code
    delay(1000);
}

Clear Serial Monitor by Using Another Serial Terminal Program

Instead of using Arduino IDE, you can use another program for serial monitoring like the Brey terminal. It has a lot of stunning features along with a clear receive, send window. It is only available for windows. It is only a single and small .exe file that can be used without installation. Use this link to download this program.
