Using the AVR Freaks installation on XP, is there a quicker and easier way to edit/compile/debug in AVR studio than this process which I'm now using:

Change C program source. Save file.
AVR Studio menu choice: Build
AVR Studio menu choice: File Open the coff file for my project.
(AVR Studio closes the project files).
After coff does its thing and the startup .S window appears, I then have to
Open the Project file.
Open the C file.

Screw around util the F5 key has the proper result to get to my breakpoint.
Resume debugging.

I am a complete novice.

That's pretty much what's required. I haven't found it neccessary to reload the project and C file though. If you start stepping after loading the coff file it should first step through the startup code and enter your main() routine.

The process is pretty quick if you use the shortcut keys for each menu selection though.
