How to Choose C# Language latest version (minor release) in Visual Studio

In this post we’ll learn about “How to Choose C# Language latest version (minor release) in Visual Studio”. Visual Studio allows you to choose the latest version of the C# language for your project. To select the latest version of the C# language, in Visual Studio, in Solution Explorer, right-click on the project and select Properties -> Build Tab. And then select the Advanced button. This will open the “Advanced build settings” window where you can select the “Language version” drop-down option.

C# language latest versions

In previous versions of Visual Studio, language version was used by default to select the default language version installed. Now there’s a change. By default, it now refers to the major version that has been released – (latest major version of C#) starting with C# language version 7.1. When this option is selected, you will only be able to use C# 7.0 features, even if other versions of C# 7.1 or C# 7.2 are installed. Unless you make explicit changes to select the minor version, the major version will be used by default. Go to Properties -> Build -> Advanced, select “Latest C# Minor Version (Latest)” to select the latest minor version installed.
