We need to install 'AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio'. The AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio is an extension for Microsoft Visual Studio running on Microsoft Windows that makes it easier for developers to develop, debug, and deploy .NET applications using Amazon Web Services.

To install AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio 2022 from Visual Studio, complete the following steps:

  1. From the Main menu, navigate to Extensions and choose Manage Extensions.
  2. From the search box, search for AWS.
  3. Choose the Download button for Visual Studio 2022 and follow the prompts.
    Note: You may need to manually close and restart Visual Studio to complete the installation process.
  4. When the download and installation are complete, you can open the AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio by choosing AWS Explorer from the View menu.
  5. Now, we can see those template projects

If you're using Visual Studio 2022 and don't see an AWS Lambda project template available, it's possible that you don't have the necessary AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio installed.

To install the AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio, you can follow these steps:

  1. Open Visual Studio 2022 and go to the "Extensions" menu.
  2. Select "Manage Extensions" from the drop-down menu.
  3. In the "Extensions and Updates" window, select "Online" from the left-hand menu.
  4. Search for "AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio" in the search bar.
  5. Click "Download" and follow the prompts to install the toolkit.


Once the toolkit is installed, you should be able to create a new AWS Lambda project by following these steps:

  1. Click on "File" -> "New" -> "Project".
  2. Select "AWS Lambda" from the list of project templates.
  3. Follow the prompts to configure your new AWS Lambda project.


If you still don't see the AWS Lambda project template after installing the AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio, you can try restarting Visual Studio or checking for any updates to the toolkit.
