Hi Folks:

I installed Visual Studio two or three months ago.

I want to look at source code for a current project I backed up a year ago.

VS 2022's Solution Explorer can't even see the files in the project.

I can't find anything in the menus to re-target the project to VS 2022.

How do I use VS 2022 to look at this old code?

Thanks
Larry

    Hi, @a_unique_name

    You need to find the source code file and right click open with VS2022.
    Or in Visual Studio: Open a project or solution Open a local folder
