    Hi @Max Cooley ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forum.

    What kind of project are you using? Are you using a project which is not supported to be published?

    If the publish option is hidden by accident maybe, you can go to Extensions > Customize Menu… > Commands > select Menu bar: and choose Build in drop-down list, and then click Reset All. (Another method, reset all VS settings)

    Besides, if you right-click on your project will you see the Publish… option in the context list? If you can see that option, click it and it will do the same operation(publish).

    Best Regards,
