    VB6 has almost nothing in common with VB.Net, so don't buy VB6 books when using Visual Studio 2019

    Very admirable! (But, like stated above, it is NOT Visual Basic 6.0).

    Several good options for you here based upon the product you have:

    Sam I am (as well as Confused at times).

    Use the help menu and look at the about section. There you will see the version. I do not have 2019 installed but I would guess that it is Version 16.
    As for books you need something published within the last 5 years if you want it to be somewhat close to what you are using.
