Hi and thanks for looking.
I created a project which is working but now when I load the project the designer window does not appear.
I can run the project and it shows and works but I now want to add to it.
I think the problem was that I renamed the folder where the project was but I have looked in that folder and all seems to be there so not sure what to try?

When this sort of thing has happened to me, the following has worked to fix it on occasion:

1. Add a new project to your solution.
2. In the Solution Explorer, drag the problem item to the new project to copy it.
3. Make any changes required to get the new project to build and run.
4. Delete the original item from the original project.
5. Drag the item back to the original project from the new one.
6. Build and run the original project.
7. Delete the new project.
