Help with textures in hammer plz

i have just gotten hammer but it cant find any textures, i looked for wad. files but it cant display any. help anyone?

I don’t know why you weren’t getting any textures, but we don’t use .wads anymore, we use individual .vtfs and .vmts. Your textures should be in Hammer by default

im also getting a problem like that were i dont have any textures, never did that before

well, the list of textures when i look is empty, plus its looking for wad files and i cant get it to change
