In order to run this application, you have two options

This mode is for debug purpose, Break point works only in this mode.
- Run Application without Debugging
Press Ctrl + F5 Or Go to DEBUG > Start Without Debugging.
For now, Run Application without debug mode. Then it will open the application in browser new tab.
Application URL will be localhost:portnumber in my case it is localhost:53322.
If you change URL to localhost:53322/Home/Index, You can see the same view, because it is the default URL or View.
