Nuxt.js default layout not being applied

I’m brand new to using Nuxt.js, and having an issue: When I created my project, the layouts folder wasn’t generated automatically as documented. I added it manually, but default.vue is not being applied anywhere. Here is layouts/default.vue:


I’ve tried things such as manually setting default as the layout in pages and manually importing the AppHeader component in default.vue (although this is definitely not the issue as other HTML I put there doesn’t get rendered either). Not sure what’s going wrong here, scratching my head. Using nuxt 2.15.7. If there’s any additional detail needed please let me know what and I’ll gladly provide, thanks.
