Express 2010; Basic and Expert Settings

Or: “Where has Start Without Debugging gone?”

I'm a fan of C# Express; it is great tool for quick/scratch code, and if you find my machine without at least one Express window in the task-bar, then it must be Patch Tuesday.

It looks like the Express editions of 2010 have different menu configurations for basic and advanced users:

Tools/Settings/{Basic|Expert} Settings

This makes a lot of sense, but caught me off guard - especially since many of the key chords work in both modes.

I won’t attempt to list all the differences; but if you can’t find your menu items… try switching to Expert mode.
