    Web Forms templates exist in Visual Studio 2022. Select ASP.NET Web Application (.NET Framework). A few clicks later you can select Web Forms.


    If you don't see the ASP.NET Web Application option then try installing the ASP.NET and web development workflow using the Visual Studio installer. Since you see MVC templates, I assume you already have the workflow installed.
