I don't know if there is an option which you can set to get what you want! But here is another way you can follow... E.g. for your evaluation a=3 In[1]:= Clear["Global`*"] In[2]:= HoldForm[a=3] ReleaseHold[%] Out[2]= a=3 Out[3]= 3 In this way you have your desired output and also Mathematica has assigned the value 3 for the variable a. Indeed In[4]:= Information[a] >From In[4]:= "Global`a" >From In[4]:= a = 3
