    Um, you want to compile and build a program using Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition?

    There is no shortcut button provided by default. Look in the menu options.

    Create a new project. copy/paste or write the code by hand onto the source file that gets created, click the build button and run your new executable

    I don't understand your question. You have built the source code into an executable already? What is it exactly you are asking?

    I assumed that you wrote the code yourself. If not, then it depends. For example, the source code might come with a .sln file that you can use to setup a project. If not, create a new project, then import the files.

    You can make shortcuts for compiling, building and executing. Go up towards the menus, right click, click on customize, click on comands, and then find whatever you want to make a shortcut of. I don't know if that works on the express edition (I assume it does), but it works out ok on the .NET version that I have.
