How to set your current project to always be the startup project


Sweet!  Today’s tip is our first tip sent in by a customer.  Got a VS tip you want to share?  Saw a great tip on the MSDN Forums?  Let me know!

Right-click on your solution in the Solution Explorer, select “Set StartUp Projects…”. From there, select “Current Selection” and click “OK”. Whatever project you highlight in the Solution Explorer (or file you select in the text editor) will now become the current startup project.

    Only if that worked in VS 2003 :)

    In VS 2003, in the start page there is an option, something like ‘start with last active project’ or something. It’s pretty obvious, look for it and you will find it.

    btw, the VS 2005 startup tip doesn’t work for me!
