Ouch, of course. You are on Mac. Apple decided that it should be "Preferences".

So somewhere in the preferences is a menu that opens all the "Options". And in the options is that setting.
Mind, you can change the debugger for each project, in the project options. If you have done so, then you need to change the setting there.

Considering these kind of situations (and possibly documentation in the Wiki and such), maybe we should bring back the "Options" menu item under the tools menu for macOS (and keep "Settings" under the application menu as well). The menu has changed quite a while ago, but working on Mac/Linux/Windows I get quite often confused trying to find this menu item as well.
Not sure what others think of this idea?

Something like "project1.app" (if your project is called project1). By default this ".app" extension is not shown in Finder unless you've set Finder to show all extensions (in Finder -> Settings -> Advanced -? check "Show all filename extensions").
You can right click it in Finder and the menu should show "Show Package Contents" which reveals the directory structure of the .app bundle.

Yes, double clicking the .app lauch the app without displaying the shell window. Thanks Hansaplast.

I just found it under Lazarus -> Settings. Thanks Martin.
