    I installed community 2017 lat year; when I installed I didnt check the C++ Workload . Now I want to use it for C++, the tutorial i am watching is prompting that the Windows Desktop Wizard is the template to use for a specific project, but i don't see it in my template lineup, though I do see on the left side Visual C++, with subtemplates ATL, General, Test,and Win32. How would i update my vs2017 to include the Windows Desktop template?

    You should have the Visual Studio Installer on your system. You can use that to Modify installed products. It provides access to the workload options that you saw when you first installed the product.
