    Hi suziking,

    Welcome to asp.net forum.

    On the left side of the "Add New Item" Pop up screen, I just have 2 options under installed - VB and c# and then online....

    I check my Visual Studio 2013 on my side, I didn't find Mobile Web Form option, I'm not sure whether Mobile Web Form option is removed in Visual Studio 2013.

    I will look into it further.

    Regards

    Angie
