Go to:
Tools --> Options...

Check the 'Show all settings' box in the lower right corner

Then go to:
Projects and Solutions --> General

Check the 'Show advanced build configurations' box somewhere in the middle section.

Now you will have the option to quickly toggle between debug and release builds in the toolbar and see all sort of 'advanced' features in the solution and project properties.

This also gives access to the option to use tabs instead of spaces. Don't know why the default is spaces. I want to decide myself how many spaces a tab should be ;-).
Open the Solution Explorer if not already shown.

Scroll all the way up to the Solution you want to build, Right click on the solution.
There you will have your release options.
