Why are my integers showing as hexadecimal in Visual Studio 2005

If you Integers are displaying as hexadecimals (funny letters) then you've probably switched on the hexadecimal display option in your watch window.

You need to debug a project, open up the watch window: Debug > Windows > Watch 1 then right click on an entry and untick 'hexidecimal display'.

I hate it when your using an IDE and something stops working, finding a fix can be like hunting around for a needle in a hay stack.

Today I faced the above problem; I've faced this problem twice before, it seems to happen once every year or so. I always forget that the fix isn't in the options menu and hopefully by blogging it, next time the solution will be a simple search away.
