Select window tab from left and after that select WPF Application. When you click ok you will see two Pages – one is .xaml and second is .xaml.cs

MainWindow.xaml

		<Window x:Class="WpfApplication2.MainWindow"
        xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
        xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
        Title="MainWindow" Height="350" Width="525">

    This is the Example of WPF
</Window>
		

I simply add text in the windows.

MainWindow.xaml.cs

		using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows;
using System.Windows.Controls;
using System.Windows.Data;
using System.Windows.Documents;
using System.Windows.Input;
using System.Windows.Media;
using System.Windows.Media.Imaging;
using System.Windows.Navigation;
using System.Windows.Shapes;

namespace WpfApplication2
{
    /// 
    /// Interaction logic for MainWindow.xaml
    /// 
    public partial class MainWindow : Window
    {
        public MainWindow()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

      
    }
}
		

When I execute this application it will show output as follows:-

As you can see that its showing the Title MainWindow. We can customize the window according to us.

For Example

I customize the height and width and Title of the window

		<Window x:Class="WpfApplication2.MainWindow"
        xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
        xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
        Title="Tech Altum" Height="500" Width="700">

    This is the Example of WPF
</Window>
		

Now it will show the following output:-
