Get started with Visual Studio 2017
Creating and running a program
When you start writing code in Visual Studio, you begin with a project. A project contains all of the source code files, images, data files, and other odds and ends that will be bundled together to create a program. It also contains settings used to process and configure your code.
Visual Studio organizes projects into solutions. A solution is a collection of projects that are associated with each other. If you’re just getting started, a solution will probably only contain one project, but for more complicated programs, you may want to add more.
Creating a new project
To start coding with Visual Studio, go to File → New → Project. You can use the selectors on the left to choose different types of languages or platforms to work with.
To create a project, first select the type of project you would like to create. Name your project and specify its location, then click OK to create your project.
Running your code
To run your code, click the green play button in the toolbar.
You can use the menu option Debug → Start debugging or use the keyboard shortcut F5.
