What is Bootstrap and Why is it Important?
Step 1: Download and Install Visual Studio
The first step is to download and install Visual Studio. You can choose the free Visual Studio Community edition or go for the licensed Visual Studio Professional or Enterprise versions as per your preference.
Step 2: Create a New Project
Next, create a new project in Visual Studio by clicking on “File” and then “New Project”. Select “ASP.NET Web Application” from the list of templates and give your project a suitable name.
Step 3: Choose a Template

Step 4: Add Bootstrap Files to Your Project
In order to add the bootstrap files to your project, right-click on the “wwwroot” folder in Solution Explorer and choose “Add” and then “Existing Item.” Navigate to the folder where you extracted the bootstrap files and select all the CSS, JS, and font files. Click “Add” to add them to your project.
