I do not want to do the extra mouseclick if I do not need to

Go to menu -> Tools -> Options -> Projects and Solutions -> Build and Run -> On run, when projects are out of date

My preference is to force running to first save the edited files and then build before running, so I choose the Always Build option. Right now, your option is Prompt to Build, which gives you a chance to see whether you really want your newly edited code to be in the build, or just run with the old executable.

If you check "do not show is dialog again", you will never automatically build after editing your source code - the option becomes Never Build, which means you will have to first do a build to get your edited changes into the executable.

Right, it is useful to learn about these options. But, there are a ton of them.
Here is one that you should enable now - line numbers:
Go to menu -> Tools -> Options -> Text Editor -> C/C++

Put a check mark next to Line numbers.
Now, if you post a screenshot with the errors, it will be easy to see which line the error is referring to.
