You want to create a Web Forms utility program, and you’re unsure how to organize its files.
Pass on Visual Studio’s default directory for ASP.NET solutions. Rather, create a blank solution in a directory of your choice. Then, make it a virtual folder.
Visual Studio places solution files (.sln) in a directory in C:\Users\CurrentUserName\source\repos\ProjectName by default. It also places ASP.NET pages (.aspx) and other source code files in a directory under C:\Inetpub\wwwroot. It’s not wise to have project files scattered in two different locations on disk. A fix is to create a blank solution in Visual Studio in a directory of your choice (for example, the BugReporter solution in the C:\TestUtilities\BugReporter directory). Next, make the solution’s directory a virtual folder. Lastly, add a new Web Forms project in Visual Studio and set its location to the virtual directory. The result: All project files will be created in this folder.
