    Hello @Farid Ahmed ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forum.

    Visual Studio has a "AutoRecover" feature. Please navigate to %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\BackupFiles\[projectname], and check if your projects were autosaved there.

    Besides, if you didn’t delete your projects but only VS, the projects/codes should still work. Do you get any error message?

    Best Regards,
    Tianyu
