    2. In the Create a new project dialog, select Blazor App and click Next.
    3. In the Configure your new project dialog, provide name of the project you want to create in the Project name field and location for the project in the Location field. Click Create.
    4. In the Create a new Blazor app dialog, select Blazor WebAssembly App template and click Create. A new client-side Blazor app is created. Alternatively, you can also create a Blazor server-side app.
