Where did that Visual Studio 2008 menu go….

So I was working in Visual Studio had a hankering for debugging an already running process. Easy right? Debug -> Attach to Process. Well, it’s not so easy to do when the menu option dissapears. I pulled up my Debug menu and it had 4 options. Windows, Start,Step Over, Step Into. Hmmm.. missing something there right.

Well, after pulling a few hairs out I figured out how to get my Attach to Process option back.

Its painful but effective. Tools -> Import and Export Settings. Reset to Visual Studio default. Pick the best generic settings and finish the wizard.

All your menus will be back to normal. You just lose all of your keyboard shortcuts and custom settings you painstakingly setup.
