    2. Why Emulator isn't showing my app what I create in android studio?
    I created my app but for some reason it isn't showing up on emulator screen instead it shows normal phone screen.

    3. Compilation errors "This project contains Java compilation errors, which can cause rendering failures for custom views. Fix compilation problems first."

    Why not to start your app in debugging mode on an emulator and then do step-by-step debug?

    It will be the same and have a error message.

    Is your project an old one? It seems to show a lack of signing configuration for your project.

    Android Studio automatically stores your debug signing information in a signing configuration so you do not have to enter it every time you debug. A signing configuration is an object consisting of all of the necessary information to sign your app, including the keystore location, keystore password, key name, and key password.

    So, create a new project and then copy all your codes into it in order to build successfully.

    Or try to fix the issue in current project.

    Have you imported the design library into your project? It looks like you're missing a reference in your build.gradle

    compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:23.0.1'
    compile 'com.android.support:design:23.0.1'

    Where can I write this code? I'm in build.gradle (module: Second app.app)

    plugins {

    buildToolsVersion "30.0.3"

    defaultConfig {
    applicationId "com.example.secondapp"
    minSdkVersion 23
    targetSdkVersion 30
    versionCode 1
    versionName "1.0"

    testInstrumentationRunner "androidx.test.runner.AndroidJUnitRunner"

    buildTypes {
    release {
    minifyEnabled false
    proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android-optimize.txt'), 'proguard-rules.pro'
    compileOptions {
    sourceCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
    targetCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_6
