Detaching allows you to disconnect the debugger from a program that you have attached to or launched from the debugger.

To detach from all programs simultaneously

  • On the Debug menu, click Detach All.

    If you detach all processes, the debugger session ends automatically.

    Caution noteCaution:

    Detaching from a process does not terminate the process. The process continues running on its host computer even though it is no longer attached to the debugger.
