To make any view as your landing page you have to set it to default in the route table. Did you tried that?

in routconfig.cs routes.MapRoute(
name: "Default",

url: "{controller}/{action}/{id}",
defaults: new { controller = "xyz", action = "ex", id = UrlParameter.Optional }

You don't navigate to view files directly. Set the start page in the project properties to be the controller and action that returns that view;


The "set as start page" option is really for webforms projects, not mvc ones.
