How to set default page asp.net

ASP.NET WebForms

On the web.config file, try this to use the clear tag before:

<system.webServer>
<defaultDocument>
<files>
<clear />
<add value="Pages/Home.aspx" />
</files>
</defaultDocument>
</system.webServer>

ASP.NET MVC / ASP.NET CORE

Depending of the version of asp.net mvc you are using, you can have it on a different file (~/Global.asax.cs in v3 or older or ~/App_Start/RouteConfig.cs in v4 or newer). In both cases, you will see something register the routes, because asp.net mvc uses routes instead files like webforms. So, you can change the default values:

public static void RegisterRoutes(RouteCollection routes)
{
routes.IgnoreRoute("{resource}.axd/{*pathInfo}");
routes.MapRoute(
name: "Default",
url: "{controller}/{action}/{id}",
defaults: new
{
controller = "Home", // default controller
action = "Index", // default action on the controller
id = UrlParameter.Optional
}
);
}

It is similar on the ASP.NET CORE.
