    Help needed in customizing MS Visual Studio.net

    Hello,
    I just got motivated to learn more about C++ so I'm a bit of a noob. Right now, I'm not encountering any problems but I want to know how do I put/show the line numbers in Microsoft Visual Studio.Net?
    I don't know how to put in on.
    For example. If it says "Error in line 253". I want to scroll down and go to 253 but there's no numbers at all. Anyone know how to configure this?
    Thanks in advance

    The closest I could find was using Ctrl+G to bring up the Go To Line dialog.

    Two other options:

    Look in the bottom right hand corner and it shows you the line and column of the current cursor location.

    or

    Go to Tools->Options->Text Editor->C/C++ and check the line numbers option to display line numbers.

    If you want to turn on line numbers, click on:
    Tools>Options>Text Editor> C/C++ >General and check line numbers under display
