Visual Studio 2019 No Report option in add item menu

I was having a heck of a time trying to create a report in Visual Studio 2017.  I removed references to version 9 and installed 150.1400 from nuget and added the references back.  I was never able to get a report viewer onto a form.  It always ended up at the bottom as a component like the timer or backgroundworker.  I uninstalled 2017 and installed 2019 after hours of unsuccessful google fu trying to fix it.  2019 allows me to drop a report viewer onto a form but I am missing the add new item - report option.  So now I can drop a report viewer onto a form but I can't add an RDLC to my winforms project.  I may go back to VS 2010 where things just worked...This is crazy frustrating.

Any ideas on getting the report creation option into the menu?

Thanks

Thank you.  That was easier than expected.  I wonder why that solution doesn't come up sooner in Google efforts and why Microsoft separated the report viewer from Visual Studio?  Are they moving in a new direction?

I dunno.. Haven't used Google in years... 😈
And this is new Microsoft - Lean and Not so.. Mean. Things are modular.. You can get them on demand... And if you don't need them they don't bloat up the installer.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
