Show build configuration in Visual C# express

When I start download Visual C# express, I thought Microsoft remove the feature for selecting build setting (debug/release), because I can't find the build configuration anywhere.
I found out that you just need to do some setting.
To show the advanced build configuration,
open: Tools -> Options -> Project and Solutions and then check the "Show Advanced build configurations".
and viola, you have the build configuration (almost) like visual studio.

Alas this does not seem to work in Visual C# Express 2010.

Forsooth. Why not? A dreadful frustration. Any tips appreciated if I'm missing something. But I have this option set and can't find the Build menu or toolbar anywhere.
