After previously using Visual Studio 2015 and 2012, I recently installed and began using Visual Studio 2019. Right away I noticed that .exe files, even for small apps were large, e.g. 150-200 KB. Using VS 2012, much larger apps had .exe sizes of 20-30 KB. I also noticed that apps developed with VS 2019 have .dll files. Apps developed using previous versions of VS do not.
Nearly all of the apps I develop are created using the Windows Forms Desktop template. They are meant to be simple apps that run on a Windows PC. Is there a simplified template that I can choose when I create a new project in VS 2019 so that apps are smaller and no .dll files are necessary?
