Show debug window on breakpoint
Is this checkbox is selected, JetBrains Rider activates the Debug window on hitting a breakpoint.
Hide debug window on process termination
Automatically hide the Debug window when the debugged program terminates.
Scroll execution point to center
If this checkbox is selected, the line with the current execution point will be kept in the middle of the screen.
Select how you want to remove breakpoints:
You can also choose whether you want a confirmation dialog to be displayed when you are about to remove a conditional or a logging breakpoint

Break on user-unhandled exceptions (.NET/.NET Core only)
Select this option to break and debug unhandled exceptions.
Process exceptions outside of my code (.NET/.NET Core only)
Break on unhandled exceptions
Disable JIT optimization on module load (.NET/.NET Core only)
This option (which is on by default) suppresses optimization made by the just-in-time (JIT) compiler. This means that the non-optimized code will be executed slower but it will match the source code.
Enable external source debug (.NET/.NET Core only)
Enables automatic decompilation and debugging of external code.
Enable breakpoint suggestion on mouse hover
Show hex value for integers
Show return values
Enable Edit And Continue (.NET/.NET Core only)
When this option is on, you can edit your code and continue debugging without restarting.
There are cases when modifying the code is not possible and a restart is required. These include changing signatures, modifying generic functions, renamings of any kind, and some more. If this happens JetBrains Rider will make you aware by showing a tooltip.
Allow typing during debug
Current JIT debugger
This set of options lets you configure the default just-in-time (JIT) debugger for your system. You can see the current JIT debuggers for 32 bit and 64 bit process and use the buttons to set JetBrains Rider as the default debugger or restore the one which was set default previously.
