Description Peter Collins 2013-07-22 17:00:26 UTC
It seems a little counter intuitive to have the "Start" button default to "Start Debugging" when the active build configuration is set to release. Is there anyway we can improve this behavior to have the "Start" button default to "Start Without Debugging" when release configuration is set? While this is likely a low priority enhancement, if there's a simple enough way to implement this I think it would make for a better UX.

There is no way (or at least easy) to change that in VS. And it would be probable confusing if we do that.
