Creating a Console Application RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey there,

    I'm trying to begin learning C#, but the tutorials out there all require me to creating a Console Application based project. However, when attempting to do so, the option isn't there for me (Visual Studio 2017). From my New Project window, there is no "Console Application" option as I'm being told there is. I'm not exactly sure what to do here, could anyone give me some tips of maybe needing to install a new version, or anything of the sort?
