Hi - when I compile my C# application, is there any way to copy all of the required resource files into the bin directory (debug or release)? e.g. in the project directory I have: Form1.cs, Form1.Designer.cs, ... test.txt I want 'test.txt' to be copied to the bin directory to be used with the resulting .exe at each compile. Thanks!

Select the file in the list,
Properties,
Set 'Build action' to Content,
then set 'Copy to output directory' to 'copy if newer'
