'Basic Page'-type project problem in VS2019 - revisited

Jun 24 2020 3:28 PM
This question has been asked and answered already.  But I'm not able to see the option given as the solution.
 
I am using the C# book: Head First C#, 3rd edition (from ~2013 using earlier versions of VS and C3).  The first exercise in Chapter 1 wants me to open a project of type: Basic Page.  I don't see that option.  Look at the question from 2019 to see the screen shot of the recommended answer.  I don't have all of those options, and especially not Basic Page.  Note: it's trying to have us use XAML to build a simple game and the opening screen is supposed to be able to have a grid and be arranged in rows and columns for humans and aliens to battle within.
 
Since I don't see the suggested option, I either started with the wrong type of project OR I need to have more software installed.
I have Visual Studio Community 2019 with the following parts:
.NET Desktop development
Universal Windows Platform development
Data Storage and Processing
 
Then I chose: Blank App (Universal Windows ) as the project template.
Do I need more software installed, or to choose a different project type?
Again, I don't see the option for Page (WPF).
