How can I fix the below \App_Start\BundleConfig.cs or another file to include “?version=1” or something ?

Steps
1.      Create new ASP.net MVC 4 C# APP
2.      Open \Content\Site.css
•      Change H2 font size
3.      Run app
•      Font change appears
4.      Change H2 font size again
5.      Run app again
•      Font change does not appear
6.      Open \Views\Shared\_Layout.cshtml
•      Add below inside <head> after other CSS statements
•      link href="@Url.Content("/Content/Site.css? version=1")" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
7.      Run app again
•      Font change appears correctly

Usually you can double-click the "Refresh" button a few times and it will re-load the css file.  You don't want to completely prevent caching because that's one of the reasons using a css file is more efficient than inline styles.
