So I am new to C# and Vs Studio. I was playing around learning it by adding new classes and testing what I could do. However, today it seems like no matter what I do, when I create a new class it won’t link to the main file.
For example, I will go to the toolbar up top and navigate to
Project -> Add New Item -> Visual C# Class
I notice I no longer get the option to name the file in this window like I use to
I have working classes currently from the last time I did this and tried to create a new file in the project and just copy/paste all the code while changing the name of the class, still didn’t work.
Not sure what is going on anymore as I’ve followed YouTube tutorials click for click but it still doesn’t work.
Below are the stats of my VS studio which I havent changed since the last time I’ve used it and the last time I used it, creating a c# class worked without these problems.

Your solution explorer is in "Folder View" – it behaves differently in that view. To switch back to the regular view, click the "Switch between solutions and views" icon in Solution Explorer (circled), and double click you solution file (.sln):
After you are back in your solution view, you should be able to right click and add an item to add a class file again, and choose its name before creating it.
