  • Once you add the application page it will automatically create the Layouts Folder.
  • In the solution explorer you could see Layouts à SharePointProject àApplicationPage.aspx.
  • Once you deploy the solution the pages will be automatically placed in the layouts folder.
  • Open ApplicationPage.aspx from the solution explorer. Here you can change the layout of the page.
  • You can also change the "PlaceHolderPageTitle" content.
