Not enough information. Does VS work at all? Does it compile?

Unbelievable! You don't show main part of the image. Guess what? The title bar.
But it will be not enough anyway.

You didn't understand. That's not mine. I just have that problem. Debug option is
not available.

I think I understand, but... can you tell me what's written in the title?

You cannot debug php in Visual Studio.
From your screenshot, it appears you've opened a PHP project in Visual Studio and this cannot be debugged here!

There are some extensions ([^]), however, which will help you debug in the IDE.

No its not my screenshot i just have the same problem. When i copy the codes and paste to a "new project", debug option is available but, whenever i open an another project, its off again. why?

I already asked you about detail, you did not answer. We do not know what is that "another project". So, what happens you you create a brand new one? Debugging? Then exit Studio and run again. What happens with the SAME PROJECT?

And why, why would you show PHP project, if it's not yours?! Just to confuse?

Well spotted, my 5.
PHP to be debugged under Visual Studio is this:
