In Tools – Options – Debugging – General, there’s the option “Break all processes when one process breaks.”  Let’s say you are debugging multiple projects, and you want to configure what happens when one process breaks.

Break all processes

For example, let’s say I have two console applications running in an infinite loop.  And on the second console application, I break the process.  Notice how the first console application also breaks.

both console applications break

And of course, you can unchecked this option to have the first console application keep going.
