    I think you should get used to putting a ; after each input. Ex; y =
    This prevents the printing of any output. What I usually do is work
with no ;'s while developing a notebook but when I am sure that it is
doing what I want, I add ;'s to the end of each input to hide the
results. I only print the results that I really want to see. 
    If you have a notebook that handles matrixes, for example, there is
no point in printing them except, maybe, a final result matrix. If you
save your work in that way, when you reload it, you see only the input
cells and, eventually, the final output if you left the ; out on the
corresponding input. 
    I hope this answered your question,
