How stop VC tracing .ASM code

When single-stepping through (debugging) code in VC++ 5 -- i.e., with the F11 key -- it tries to step through library source code (e.g. strcpy).  Even if I slam down on the escape key, it still proceeds to walks the .ASM, and it is a royal PITA to deal with the distraction.

The upshot is that I have to "mentally, by default" use F10, inevitably causing me to overshoot (step over) my OWN source code functions.  How can I prevent the .LIB code tracing?

You can't avoid this - but simply use 'Shift+F11' to step out of the library functions...

OK, that's worth 60!  With shift-F11 and then [sometimes] Ctrl-F4, it's possibly 60% as easy and useful as Borland had it YEARS ago ... but with MS, what do you want?!  Thanks for the very useful suggestion.

Yes, it's one more example of the HeadUpTheAss logic of Microsoft.  Unfreakingbelievable that after this many _years_ they don't even have the kindergarten-level common sense to not design such an unproductive feature (even _with_ shift-F11).
