Sorry to ask such a simple question, but is there a setting somewhere to
get my Build/Release drop down back that was in 2003? I really miss it.

You can place the Configuration drop down list on toolbar:
1. Go to tools Tools - Customize... (or right-click on any toolbar and
Customize...)
2. Switch to "Commands" tab.
3. Select "Build" in Categories.
4. Select "Solution Configurations" under Commands.
5. Drag and drop it on the toolbar where you wish this drop down list to
appear.

So I can select the solution configurations and drag it to my build
toolbar. It is greyed out though. Any idea?

I had the same situation. I tried manually adding the Build dropdown
back to the toolbar. I eventually had to do what is described in the
link I posted that you say does not help.

When I installed VS2005 I asked to setup the Visual Basic development
environment not knowing all of the ramifications, one of which is there
is no Build type selector dropdown on the toolbar. I was able to
restore my environment by following the instructions in that link,
notably:

Tools, Import and Export Settings
Choose Restore all settings
Save your current settings if desired
Choose General Development Settings and Finish.

Thanks for beating me on the head to get me to understand your orginal
post. Read through it w/o understanding standing it. You have solved
my problem and life is now good...

Thanks!
