Add 'Start without Debugging' to Right-Click Project Menu

Sometimes I need to launch a couple of my other projects first before my default startup project. However, if I use the right-click the project in Solution Explorer and go to Debug -> Start new Instance it launches the VS Debugger, so I have to detach from the process and then launch the next part before I can finally just use F5 or Ctrl+F5 to launch my main project with or without debugging.

It'd be great of the context menu for the project's Debug menu had a 'Start without Debugging' option as well to just launch the project process without hooking in the debugger.

    In VS 2017:
    Tools -> Customize -> Commands Tab -> Context Menu (Radio Box) -> Project and Solution Context Menus | Project | Debug -> Click Add command and add Start Without Debugging.

    As stated below:
    it just starts the default project, not the one you've right-clicked on....

    Yeah the existing "Start without Debugging" implementation is completely daft. If you try adding it to your menu it just starts the default project, not the one you've right-clicked on....
