How do I stop from browser being closed when I stop debugging in Visual Studio 2017?


I have recently updated my Visual studio from 2015 to 2017 and started using 2017 now, but when I start debugging in it, it opens website in new browser tab and as soon as I stop debugging it closes the browser tab/website also.

Previously, in Visual Studio 2015, Browser tab never used to get closed as soon as I stop debugging.

So, how i can disable this new feature and keep website open/running even when debugging is stoppped in Visual Studio 2017?

You need to disable two things in your Visual Studio 2017 version 15.7 + higher & Visual Studio 2019

1. Disable "Enable JavaScript debugging for ASP.NET (Chrome, Edge, and IE)"

You can do this by navigating to "Tools -> Options -> Debugging -> General" and then uncheck "Enable JavaScript debugging for ASP.NET (Chrome, Edge, and IE)"

2. Disable "Stop debugger when browser window is closed".

You can do this by navigating to "Tools -> Options -> Projects and Solutions -> Web Projects" and then uncheck "Stop debugger when browser window is closed"

uncheck-stop-debugger-when-browser-window-visual-studio

OR

If your project is .net core: you can also try this in Properties folder -> launchSettings.json file set this config :

"launchBrowser": false,

And in Visual Studio 2022, "Tools -> Options -> Projects and Solutions -> Web Projects" and then uncheck "Stop debugger when browser window is closed" as shown in the above image.

If you are using visual studio 2022, navigate to Tools -> Options -> Projects and Solutions -> Web Projects -> From the options on "Right" pane

uncheck: Stop debugger when browser window is closed, close browser when debugging stops

as shown in the below image

Also, If your project is .net core, check in Properties folder -> launchSettings.json file set this config :

"launchBrowser": false,

(Visual Studio 2017) Disable "Stop debugger when browser window is closed".

(Visual Studio 2019) Disable "Stop debugger when browser window is closed, close browser when debugging stops".

Thanks
