Visual Studio not automatically building application on pressing F5 key

Recently I was facing one issue with Visual Studio 2010. When I change some code in Visual Studio 2010 and hit F5, it is not building application and running old compiled version. Every time I want to debug an application, I have to first manually build application and then hit F5  key to debug my application. Usually visual studio automatically builds application on hitting F5 key.

I found interesting solutions from internet to resolve this issue. You need to open the Configuration Manager from Debug Dropdown or right click on Solution and open Configuration Manager Window. Now click on Build Checkbox.

Another solution would be useful if your Project is out of date or you have installed newer version. Go to Tool -> Option -> Project and Solutions -> Build and Run from Visual Studio. Now select “Always build” or “Prompt to build” option of “On Run, when project are out of date”.

Hope this small Tip might help you to fix this issue.
