VS 2010 Quick question - How to automatically pre-build before run

I'm writing C++ code using Visual Studio 2010 beta 2. When I click "Start Debugging" button on the tool-bar, or simply press F5, Visual Studio runs the last built version of my code. However, I want it to build my code every time I attempt to run it. How can make Visual Studio always pre-build my code?

In VC++ 2008, it's in Tools->Options->Projects and Solutions->Build and Run.

Not sure about 2010 though.

You could probably record a macro which builds then runs, then run your program with that macro instead of F5.

Why would you want to rebuild your project everytime you start your application from within Visual Studio, even when nothing has changed?


I don't want to build my project when it is up-to-date, but the problem is that it doesn't automatically build when there is a change in the code.
