I screwed up! On the START page under Recent Projects I deleted an unused project. In doing so I also deleted an existing project that I desperately need, named CapexEval. (I could explain further how this accidentally happened but I suspect that does not matter one bit. The fact is that CapexEval no longer exists in the Recent Projects list and I need it to be there and for it to show up for further programming edits.)
Now, I am not altogether vapid; I just make the occasional mistake. I DO HAVE A BACKUP of the project I need.
I have copied the backup into my Visual Studio Projects folder. However, I have been unable to load CapexEval onto the START page's Recent Projects. I have tried various tactics but they do not work to load the program in any way. I still need to add more programming to this app.
The .sln file displays the data shown in the attachment shown below.
Perhaps you have a solution to my baffling situation.
