    I make a very good living using just the "stupid black command prompt window", so I would be within my rights to be insulted.

    You can't do it with standard C++. So you'll have to tell us your compiler, operating system, and choose from a number of APIs that support graphics. So no, we can't post a tutorial for you because your question is to vague to be answered properly.

    That's okay, I can tolerate GUI people not understanding the joys of the back end.

    Visual Studio offers you tools for building a pretty graphical interface. You can start by playing around with the wizard, or you can look into the Win32 API, or MFC which is a bunch of classes wrapping the Win32 API. But it's a mental leap from console programming.
