  • Have you tried to double-click “Program.cs” that can be seen at right side in Solution Explorer?

  • Please try:
    1. Right click on "Program.cs"
    2. Select [View Code]

  • Hi nrkilla14,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    Does your issue is solved or not? I agreed with Viorel_ and Ashidacchi, please try to click the Program.cs or F7 to show the Text Editor. From your shared screenshot, it looks like you already not chosen any .cs file to show the text editor, if you create a new C# console application, the text editor of Program.cs auto open and under Solution Explorer, the cursor focus on the project name like ‘ConsoleApplication4’ in your case, not the solution name and we can manually close the Text Editor, then reopen it through the method that Viorel_ and Ashidacchi said.

    If I misunderstand your issue, please feel free to let me know.

    Best regards,
