Issue with Visual Studio 2022 Splash Screen

Sean Fitzpatrick 11 Reputation points


So I'm taking an online visual basic introductory course at my school and the lesson this week involves using splash screens. I have no problem adding the splash screen to the program, however there is no place to set it to start before the main form loads and then transition to the main form. There is no splash screen option on the properties screen when I right click on the project name in the solution window. I found an option for startup object but when I choose the splash screen for that it just sits there. I cannot find where to enable the splash screen at all.

I sent an email to my professor about it but I am also continuing to search on the off chance I find the solution before he gets back to me.

Anyone have an idea how to solve this?
