What is the difference between Bulid and Re-build in Visual Studio .Net. Pleaes help me.

which I found with a Google search of build rebuild visual studio:
Build means compile and link only the source files that have changed since the last build, while
Rebuild means compile and link all source files regardless of whether they changed or not. Build is the normal thing to do and is faster. Sometimes the versions of project target components can get out of sync and rebuild is necessary to make the build
successful. In practice, you never need to Clean.
Build or Rebuild Solution builds or rebuilds all projects in the your solution, while Build or Rebuild
<project name> builds or rebuilds the StartUp project, "hello" in the screen shot above. To set the StartUp project, right click on the desired project name in the Solution Explorer tab and select Set as StartUp project. The project name now appears
in bold. Since the homework solutions typically have only one project, Build or Rebuild Solution is effectively the same as Build or Rebuild <project name>.
Compile just compiles the source file currently being edited. Useful to quickly check for errors when the rest of your source files are in an incomplete state that would prevent a successful build of the entire
project. Ctrl-F7 is the shortcut key for Compile.
