I am unable to find the linker settings in the properties of my project, I can only see the 'Configuration Properties' and the 'c/c++'.

What I have tried:

I tried the older version(2019), but its the same.

Are you sure you are looking at the Project properties, and not the properties of a single source module?

I am looking at the project properties, and while I was searching it on the web, I found out something about a static project or something I am not sure of.

You may have project configuration type which does not have linker settings: makefile, utility, cmake, or the custom one. Make sure that you have Application(.exe) or Dynamic Library (.dll) to do that open project properties on General tab at the left list on right view find Configuration Type - to have linked settings you can change the value in the combo to Application(.exe) or Dynamic Library (.dll) once you click Apply the linker settings appear on the left list. NOTE: You must have at least one file for compillation in the project files: ".c" or ".cpp".

Without seeing your project file it is impossible to make any further suggestions. Please use the Improve question link above, and paste the content of your .vcxproj file so we can try to help.

Click the Project menu, then Properties.

On the left of the dialog that shows up, Linker will be in the navigation pane. Click that and you get the Linker options for the current project.

Open project properties at the general tab, check Configuration Type property at the right side. To get the Linker options you should have project configuration type the Application(.exe) or Dynamic Library (.dll), other types may not contains Linker settings.
