  • Hi mani jaladi,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    Which project type did you created? Normally, you can directly double click on the .cs file representing your form under the Solution Explorer like the following screenshot or you can press Shift+F7 (or only F7 depending on the project type) to open the Design View. From the design view, you can switch back to the Code by press F7.

    Did you meet this issue for any form files or it is only relating to the specific file? You can try to create a new project with the same project type, check this issue occur or not.

    If this issue always existing, please go to Control Panel—Programs and Features and right click the VS 2015 item, Change-Repair.

    If it only happens when you double click the specific form file, please check the designer.cs carefully and try to find any event which you have created which is present in designer.cs and not in the code behind like this similar issue.

    Best regards,
