I have just started using VS2017. I had been using 2010.
The VB program that I am currently working on was created using 2010.
The feature "Run to cursor" still appears on the right-click menu but does not seem to work.

I have seen mention of the new feature "Run to click" but do not know how to activate it.

What I have tried:

Searched on-line but could not find anything meaningful on this subject.

What search? A quick vs 2017 run to cursor - Google Search[^] turns up a lot of information! The first result is: Run To Click Debugging in Visual Studio 2017 – Microsoft DevOps Blog[^] which has a detailed description and animated screenshots showing how it works.

As stated, "Run To Cursor" appears on the right click menu but the code does not stop at the cursor. I read the linked article and also watched the video https://channel9.msdn.com/Events/Visual-Studio/Visual-Studio-2017-Launch/T118

When I am editing my code, I do NOT see the small green glyph when I hover over a line of code. Obviously I am doing something wrong I just do not know what.

It works. Set a breakpoint, run the app, hit the breakpoint, then follow the instructions. If still not working, then you are either doing it wrong or you need to contact Microsoft for support.
