SP2019 OnPrem - Howto enable missing new Document template

When I created my first teamsite in SharePoint 2019 on-prem, I was impressed with the new elegant design. However as soon as I opened the Document Library - I feel that something was amiss. Following screenshot is the Document library in SharePoint 2019 on-prem: I can no longer find “Document” template when I click on “New". In SharePoint 2019 on-prem its only showing “Folder” and “Link” under “New” button while in SharePoint online I can see Document templates and ‘+ Add template’ menu.

Installing SharePoint 2019 on-prem to Windows Server 2019

The installation experience of SharePoint 2019 to Windows Server 2019 was brisk except that I have issue during pre-requisites installation. It takes me sometimes before I realize that SharePoint 2019 still require Windows features that depends on .NET Framework 3.5. I launched prerequisites installer, and it stops quickly with error. I click “Review the log file” in the error window, then it opens the log file in Notepad. As you can see, that prerequisites installer executes Install-WindowsFeature.
