The additional template settings that are available in default blazor app are not available in Telerik Blazor App
These settings creates additional controls and are really helpful in further development. It would be great if same(or better as always) options are added in telerik blazor project templates as well would be a great addition.

Attached you will find a Blazor WASM project that I created using some of the Microsoft templates. I used the Convert wizard to convert it to a Telerik project afterwards to better illustrate how would a converted application look right after the conversion.
You may notice that the project looks like a basic one , with the initial Microsoft setup (before the conversion) as I haven't added any of the Telerik components (I suppose that might be the case with your app).
The Telerik references are added as well as the Telerik stylesheet, however they are expected to only affect the Telerik components added in the application, not the whole application setup and theme.
You've mentioned that the pages and theme is still on default after the conversion and this is expected if there are no Telerik components added in the application. If after revising and testing the project I sent any further questions or comments appear, please do not hesitate to contact us.
As for adding authentication to the wizard, it is currently not included in our Roadmap since there is a large variety of authentication options available (provided by Microsoft as well as third-party open source ones) that the clients may choose to use and with the current setup of the wizard they are able to do so, not use only one kind of built-in authentication.
The solution you proposed already tried but the outcome is not the same. I mean the pages and theme is still on default, the convert project wizard only adds the Telerik assemblies.
I would request to at the least add the Authentication along with the login pages to be available by default in the template.

Indeed, the below listed settings are not included in the Create New Project Wizard. The reason behind this is that they are created and supported by Microsoft.
For the time being there will be no actual value of cloning those settings in the Create New Project Wizard as the Convert Project Wizard already provides the option to create a Blazor app using the Microsoft Templates/Settings and then convert it to a Telerik project in a couple of simple steps. The wizard provides options to choose the desired version of Telerik UI for Blazor as well as to backup the application state before the conversion.
Note: I'm marking this thread's status as "Declined" since the setup of a Telerik Blazor project with the Microsoft templates could be currently achieved as per the above described steps.
