Output Window and Functions

I'm using the book "Let's Program it...in True Basic". When I run Programs 7.1, 7.2 or 7.3 there is no output.
These programs come for the Using Procedures chapter 7. I run the programs then the answer window pops up but disappears too quickly to read. I'm copying them from the book. All previous chapter's programs have worked. This has to be an issue with the FUNCTION process. I'm running Bronze edition. I've been told to look at the online manual chapter 5 which shows steps how to see the output in case the window is out of focus rather than being closed. I'm not seeing anything there. My Window pull down icon doesn't include anything to see. Can you offer any help. I would appreciate your advice. I'm lost now.
