How to change Application Start URL for Asp.Net Core Application in Visual Studio



In an ASP.NET Core application, the start URL is the first page that users see when they visit your website. By default, the start URL for a new ASP.NET Core project in Visual Studio is set to "/". However, you may want to change this URL to something else, such as "/home" or "/index". In this blog post, we will discuss how to change the application start URL for an ASP.NET Core application in Visual Studio.


Step 1: Open the project in Visual Studio


The first step is to open the project in Visual Studio. To do this, go to the Start menu and search for "Visual Studio". Once you find it, click on it to launch the program.


Step 2: Open the project properties


Once you have opened Visual Studio, navigate to the Solution Explorer and right-click on your project. Select "Properties" from the context menu that appears. This will open the project properties window.


Step 3: Change the start URL


In the project properties window, click on the "Web" tab. In the "Startup project" dropdown list, select the project that you want to use as the startup project for your application. Then, in the "Default endpoints" section, change the value of the "Start URL" field to the desired start URL for your application.


For example, if you want to set the start URL to "/home", you would enter "http://localhost:5000/home" into the "Start URL" field. If you want to set the start URL to "/index", you would enter "http://localhost:5000/index" instead.
