Where to download Xamarin Studio

I don't know if this is the right place to ask this, but I don't know where else to ask. I would like to install Xamarin Studio (not a plugin or extension for Visual Studio 2019, although I also use that), but I can't find anywhere to download it. Where can I find it? Thanks.

It seems that Microsoft removed all related downloads, so just forget about that obsolete product and move on to alternatives.

@njsokalski Microsoft does not provide Xamarin Studio download link any more. All related links have been redirected to Visual Studio.

Does that mean Xamarin Studio is no longer available anywhere and is no longer supported? I don't care if the link or download is from Microsoft (I didn't know it ever was), I just need somewhere to download it. My reason for trying to find it is because some tutorials (obviously for things I am not yet familiar with) I find give the steps using Xamarin Studio, so I figured it would be nice to have it available, even if I plan on doing the majority of my work in Visual Studio. I have also heard that (for some parts, at least) Xamarin has a better Xamarin Designer than Visual Studio (but that may be a matter of opinion, so I could be wrong there). Does it still exist at all, or should I just stop looking?

"Xamarin has a better Xamarin Designer than Visual Studio" is no longer true. Even if you somehow find Xamarin Studio from an archive, it is far too old to support any current iOS/Android releases. In fact, all visual designers for mobile platforms (in VS) are obsolete and a new technology called Hot Reload is taking the place. The tutorials you are reading can be quite out of date if they point to Xamarin Studio, and I don't recommend you waste time on such either.

You obviously misunderstood my question. I am looking for Xamarin Studio, not a modification or configuration in Visual Studio.
