Visual Studio : can't find “resource file” in list of items to add to project


I'm on VS Community 2017 RC.
I'd like to add a resource file (.resx) to my project but this item type is not listed in the items
Have I missed something ? Do I need to install anything on top of my Visual Studio to be able to manage resource files ?
At the top right corner you have a searchbox, try typing it there and see if it finds anything.
if it doesn't, select a text file in the new item dialog and change it's extension to
resx
it should now open the new file with the resources designer. now open the properties pane for that file (right click it in the solution explorer) and make sure it has the following set:
Build Action: Embedded resource
Custom tool: ResXFileCodeGenerator
UPDATE:
According to the link Chris posted, my suggestion won't help if you have the express edition of visual studio.
Visual Studio Express editions do not support Resource View's. It is commonly recommended that you make your way to the Visual Studio Community editions to take full advantage of such features.
Here is the MSDN link that notes the feature not being supported.
Additionally, maybe you can try this:
Right click your project and go to properties >
Click 'Resources' > and then you may see:
"This project does not contain a default resources file. Click here to create one."
