Am working on a WPF application project, so my query is am not able to add a WPF window as a new item because am not seeing any options.

What I have tried:

I tried re-installing the .Net desktop development framework but still, the result was the same.

Did you right-click your WPF project in Solution Explorer and click Add -> Window?

@Dave Exactly when I tried doing so, am not seeing any templates by name WPF

That's because your project is not a WPF app project. I don't know what type of project you created, but I would suggest you start over and recreate your project using the WPF desktop app project template.
On your Menu bar go: Project > Add Window (WPF) or as Dave described above.

@Graeme_Grant I tried doing so but I couldn't see any options of WPF when I Right clicked on project>Add item>New item

Then the project is not a WPF project. Check the Project type. The .csproj file should have
<UseWPF>true</UseWPF>

@Graeme_Grant The project is a toolkit that was developed on the WPF platform (Xbim Xplorer toolkit).
I tried opening its .csproj but it doesn't have <usewpf>true

A quick look tells me that the "Xbim Xplorer toolkit" is a third-party library that could be used in your WPF application. It could also be used in a web application. So the Toolkit is not specifically WPF. Your application "can be" a WPF application - that is your choice.

Ohh is it!! thankyou mate for the quick look. In fact, I am being new to this coding and stuff so apologize for the inappropriate questions. So now can I use it in the WPF template or project to further develop the functionalities?
